Subject: Why is an image width restricted to being between 0 and 200% of the text area
Date: Mon, 22 Nov 2021 22:16:47 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87sfvnpfao.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)

Hi,

In org-display-inline-image--width we have the restriction that
percentages and floating point width specifications must be between 0
and 200% (or 0.0 and 2.0) of the text area. Reading the comments, it
sounds like this is done because you might specify something like
1.2\linewidth, but you wouldn't write something like 5.0\linewidth. I
guess that's fair, but I can't say with certainty that there is never
any valid reason to, e.g., specify that you want a width of 500% of the
text area. I'm also not sure that we should prevent people from using
5.0\linewidth, even if it is a bit odd. The intent is clear.

Maybe I'm missing a reason as to why this is done?

Best
Matt
