Please elaborate.
- What is a 'null' document'?
- What do you mean by the 'size' of a document?

Andrew, I think maybe 'Null' means empty ?

I guess I got it: Its about the initial zoom. Attached screen-shot of what I get; Unit is mm, so display is larger than life. I always have to zoom out first, because my stuff usually is around 1m big. As I always print scaled, font-size is 24mm.
