Q&A: Why is it that some thing as expensive as Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 can only work in a screen DPI of 96 ?

Question by Nirmala: Why is it that some thing as expensive as Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 can only work in a screen DPI of 96 ?
I paid big money and bought the CS4 Adobe suite and now find that the program only supports a screen DPI of 96 . Any higher, and the icons on the screen are clipped. Surely Adobe should have found out this fault before releasing such a professional program to the markert?

Answer by Windowphobe
“DPI” doesn’t actually exist on screen: there are pixels only. And Windows, for some reason, considers that one logical inch on the screen equals 96 pixels. (Apple for many years used 72.)

If you need higher-res graphics, Adobe will happily direct you to Photoshop.
