Is it good enough to have the *effective* zoom level be 90%, even though
the indicator reads 100% ?

If so, go to File > Preferences, then

Scroll down the left pane of the resulting dialog box until you get to
Display, and click on it.

Adjust the slider until 10 units on the scale on the screen lines up
with 9 units on your ruler held up against the screen. (This assumes
you had it set up correctly beforehand.)

Click OK.
