Description Petr Tuma 2005-09-15 15:36:26 EDT
Description of problem: When exporting a PNG image (I am using the command line
interface, specifically the -e and -d switches), the DPI information inside the
PNG file is always set to 72, even though scaling works well,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): inkscape-0.42-2.fc4

How reproducible: Take any SVG image and do "inkscape IMAGE.SVG -d 300 -e
IMAGE.PNG". Take a look at the DPI information in the output image, e.g. with
"identify -verbose IMAGE.PNG" from ImageMagick, the DPI inside the file is 72.
