The first screenshot is correct - ie the text width is actually 8 inches when printed. So what is happening here?

The first screenshot above shows the file in Scriv 1.9.
I load the same project into Scriv 3, and it looks like this:
Capture.JPG I then change the page zoom from 100% to 75% as recommended by tiho here, to restore the original look of the document on screen, and the outcome is the second screenshot above. Now the font appears to be the same size on screen, but it has been changed relative to the page width.

First, here is the file in Scriv 1.9.8.
Scrivener reports it is using Courier 12pt, In the first line of text there are 62 characters over 8 inches, according to the Scrivener ruler, which means there are ~8 chars per inch.
However, when this file is compiled and printed, this line is in fact just over 6 inches long on the page, This means that there are 10 characters per inch - which is the correct pitch for Courier 12pt.
Now here is exactly the same file loaded into Scrivener 3, (beta 10)
Again, Scrivener reports it is using Courier 12pt, This line has 43 characters over ~7.33 inches, according to the Scrivener ruler, which means again that there are ~8 chars per inch.
But I do mind that Scrivener 3 completely changes the page layout of the file (I haven't tackled compiling and printing from the beta yet). I am loading exactly the same files into the two programs.
