Zoom works in two ways in Ai – one is based on the pixel density of the display, and other is on actual (physical) size of the element. The setting to control this is in:
Preferences > Display Print Size at 100% Zoom
Above setting ensures what you see at 100% zoom would be the physical size of the art. You can actually put a ruler against the screen and a 1inch rectangle will measure 1in on screen at 100%.
But this may not work right for screen design workflows. Make sure you uncheck this, if actual size zoom is not needed.

There's a significant bug with artboard display size.
For instance I have a 4k monitor set at 100% display scaling.
If I create a 1080x1080 pixel document in illustrator and scale it to 100%, it extends off of the top and bottom of my screen.
Previously before the 2022 update would display 100% at pixel accurate scale, for instance if an image is 1080 pixels wide, it would display that artboard across 1080 on screen pixels at 100% scaling.
This has made illustrator almost unusable.
In addition text scale is all wrong on these incorrectly displayed artboards 12 pt text is miniscule at the correct pixel size...Matthew Kalenuik supported this idea ·
