Why does the image size change when saving

Postby chocwrap » Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:10 pm

When I come to export an image, the size of the image in the 'Export PNG Image' dialogue box is different than the size of the image created. See the example here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/e17jbo3t7o8m0 ... Q.PNG?dl=0

The dpi is still 90dpi so it isn't that, and I have been exporting images now for ages and all is good. But for some reason in the last week something has changed to prompt this, but my set up is still the same. The only thing I've changed is from Mcafee to Kaspersky security software.

Why is this and what can I do to stop it?

Using: Windows 8.1
Inkscape Vers: 0.92.2

Recent versions of Inkscape have changed the default dpi to 96, to line up with CSS per the direction of SVG these days.
