To change, for example, the magnification on the notebook on start-up, go to the
Options Inspector.
Once there you can type magnification on the Lookup "bar." That will take you to
the spot where
you can change to the desired magnification factor. Also you can do this with
"fontfamily" and
"fontsize" in the Lookup "bar" and make you changes.
