I am preparing a poster for an in-person (finally) workshop and I know that the general guide for posters is that they should be readable from 1-2 meters away. What I don't know is how this translates to what I see on a screen.
Since we have this guideline (1-2 m viewing distance) and know that the poster has a fixed DPI and final size this made me wonder: Is it possible to work out a zoom factor that I should set in software to virtually "view" the poster from about 2m away to check if the content is readable and looks nice? Has anyone worked this out before?
I am using Inkscape, but this should apply to other programs that allow zooming, e.g. any browser or PDF viewer.
