\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{fontspec}
\defaultfontfeatures{Scale=1}
\setromanfont{Times New Roman}

\begin{document}
Hello, World!
\end{document}

When checking font size with Xara Designer, it tells me that it’s actually 10.91 pt, which I don’t understand as I’m assuming that Scale=1 explicitly disables scaling.

Note that I’m looking for a general solution, i.e. one applicable to any font that \setromanfont takes.

Just in case you think this is a duplicate: The answer to the question How to set font size at exactly 11 pt? is not applicable to XeLaTeX.

    The 11pt option of article chooses 10.95pt as main font size. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 25 '16 at 17:44

  • @samcarter Similar problem, but different cause. The answer to the author’s question is specific to the proposal package, which I’m not using. – feklee Feb 25 '16 at 19:34
  • @UlrikeFisher, and 10.95pt is 10.91bp. So if Xara Designer uses bp, there is consistency. Is the answer as simple as setting Scale=1.00457? – dedded Feb 25 '16 at 20:22

    Just use \defaultfontfeatures{Scale=1.00833333} and you get a font size of exactly 11bp. It's just simple math: 72,27/72*11/10,95 = 1.00833333 – Benjamin Feb 25 '16 at 20:32
