Why is an inch not an inch?



     I set my layout size to be 12 inches wide by 6 inches tall.  The horizontal and vertical rulers on 'edit layout'  say 12 x 6.  Hurray!!

     When I measue with my real handheld physical ruler, the layout is 9 by 4.5 inches.  It seems that 1 filemaker inch is realy only 3/4 of a real inch.

     What's going on?  Is there a way to set a layout size to correspond to the physical world?

     I'm sure I'm missing something basic here.
