If you toggle dot for dot off you get a view at the image in it's
original size, taking into account the monitor resolution. Thus you
can look at the photo in the size it will be printed in. This is
sometimes useful.

Also if you choose different horizontal and vertical image resolutions
or your monitor has differing horizonal and vertical resolutions,
turning dot-for-dot will compensate for that. Being able to turn off
dot-for-dot is an important feature but it will become more of an
expert option if we do the proposed changes. It should not be
abandoned though.
