There is this annoying thing that Preview of macOS scales down the printout of XeTeX and ConTeXt produced pdfs by default even though paper size matches.
Which fixed it for me for several years in XeTeX was using the geometry package with paperwidth and paperheight specified in bp as described here: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/388762
Now, that I'm shifting to ConTeXt for a project, the issue comes up again. I haven't found a fix so far. Obviously I tried setting dimensions in bp again:
\definepapersize[fixed][width=595bp, height=842bp] \setuppapersize[fixed][fixed]
I also tried:
While that changes dimensions of the MediaBox to 595pt and 842pt, which was seen as the culprit in the answers linked above, Preview still scales down by default :(
Any ideas how to fix this annoying thing in LuaTeX and ConTeXt?
Background: I think it's actually more than annoying. I use TeX and friends for a reason. I want my documents to look good. If I prepare e.g. a resume the recruiter might print it out without noticing it's been scaled down. After all that may reflect bad on me for using wide margins, which in turn totally contradicts the purpose of using TeX in the first place.
