Re: Add additional font size to dropdown

I suppose it must be in the "Page Content Properties"-toolbar (Classic toolbars) or in the "Format"-ribbon (Ribbon UI), where the smallest value for the "Font Size" is "8 pt".

In case you like smaller values, you must type them manually.

Re: High Res Snapshot Tool

BMP in turn seems to be limited to some 30 000 x 30 000 pixels/dots or 4 GB in size.

Do you exceed this limitation when selecting an area at 2400 dpi ?
