I have two Win 7 machines with View NX 2 on both. They both behave differently when I use the Convert Files function. On my laptop it works fine, I convert files to a smaller file and it keeps the same pixel dimensions (4287 X 2848), document size (14.29 X 9.493) and resolution (300 dpi), but a smaller file size. On my desktop it gives me a different result. I get the same pixel dimension but the document size is now 59.542 X 39.556 and the resolution is 72 dpi. Why?

This started on my desktop several versions ago but I am not sure if it started after I updated - I just noticed it one day. My laptop has the same versions. I cannot find anything in the Options Menu to change this. Does anyone know how I can get back to how it used to work and how it still works on my laptop? Is it a Registry setting, am I missing something in Options?

(And please, do not go off pointing out that 59.542 X 39.556 @72 dpi is the same as 14.29 X 9.493 @300 dpi and that I can easily convert the sizes back - I know and I know how. I just want to have View NX 2 work as it should)
