    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.

    Thank you Ashutosh for a swift response! This is fantastic! I really appreciate your willingness to listen and make changes.

    If this were in fact a "feature", and not a terrible decision, why not implement it in Photoshop as well? BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE INSANE. Because designing for screens REQUIRES an accurate pixel-based zoom reference.

    When you're viewing at 100% and you Save-For-Web or Export-For-Screens, you would expect that 100% would actually be 100%, not 154% or whatever godawful inaccurate conversion is going on.

    When you take a screenshot and paste it into a document at 100% zoom, the screenshot shouldn't paste at 154% of it's actual size.

    When you're designing for screens, you shouldn't have to set your zoom at 66.6% to get an accurate representation of the design.

    This is completely uncalled for, it solves exactly ZERO problems, and it CREATES endless headaches for screen designers.

    Please, Adobe, change this terrible decision. Implement some kind of selector that allows you to set your baseline zoom for screens. This is a major problem. I'm not going to update Illustrator until you fix it. Please.

    This is a terrible design decision. As noted by many commenters, the new "feature" doesn't even work correctly, i.e. the size of the artboard doesn't measure what it's supposed to when measured with a ruler on the monitor. Even if it DID work correctly, though, it was a very bad decision, as it completely ruins screen design.

    Pixel Preview mode doesn't suffice, as it renders VERY slowly and is not an appropriate environment to work in.

    Please add a selector somewhere so that we can switch between 100% pixels and (sort of) 100% print. Until you do, I will be stuck with version 22. Very disappointed!
