The canvas size increase works - mostly. I think its a bit of a workaround. If you make canvas over 227.54 in some plugins will interpret the dimensions at 1:10 scale.
I export vectors to a plotter via a SUMMA Winplot plugin - if the canvas is (or ever was) over 227.54 in the output will cut at 10% scale. You have to make a new file less than 227.54 in.
This also happens if you need to open a CC file in CS6 (as I do sometimes) it will be 10% scale if the original file was ever over 227.54 in.
Not perfect but a step in the right direction.Ernest Warnielius supported this idea ·
