Wrongly rounded Media Box when working in inches.


The margin in Esko XMP in Normalized PDF file is wrongly rounded.

The 4.5pt margin (Media Box) is saved as 1.588mm, which is 0.0625196850393701 inch, so you get 0.0625" in DeskPack (4 decimals) and 0.06252 in Automation Engine (5 decimals).

However, the exact value of 4.5pt is 1.5875mm or 0.0625".
