How to view a print file at actual print size?

Here’s a quick tip on how to view a file at print size or actual size so that you can determine the quality of your graphic. Most printers will suggest a resolution of 100ppi (pixels/inch). The first thing you need to do is turn on your rulers which you should be able to find under the View options. Now, you will need an actual ruler and hold it up to your screen, adjust your zoom percentage until one inch on your monitor equals one inch on your ruler.
