    Real Screen DPI


      I'm trying to get the real dimensions of the screen because I want do draw an A4 paper on the screen.
      I used the System.capabilities.screenDPI property, but it seems not to work well: it returns 72 when I know in my system is 96.

          How do you know your system is 96? Seems silly, but I'd like to know where you got the 96 from.

            Well, I mean, about 96: simply I tried to draw the short side of a A4 paper and match the paper with the screen.
            Then are few operations to do.
            It's not a scientific method, but I know that some systems got 96 DPI and it's easy to guess if your system is 72 or 96, of course, with a little lack of precision
