In CC 2019 (latest update 23.0.1), at 100% Zoom 1inch artwork would display at 1inch in physical (Print) size, on any display. If this doesn’t work right for screen design workflows, please use the checkbox Preferences > General > Display Print Size at 100% Zoom, to turn off the feature. Currently this feature works only on primary display, and there are plans of extending this to other attached displays.

I wish they could sort this out, it is really sad that they can't fix such a simple thing. The measure a square with a ruler and enter the size solution is incorporated into embroidery software, so why not this much more sophisticated software?
