Sorry same problem.

cant magnify notebook.

pop up menu on the bottom can be activated and can be switched to e.g
200%, will display 200% at the bottom but notebook magnification still
realy bad is that the magnification seems to be fixed at 80%. more or
less unreadable

changing the magnification in the OptionInspector doesn`t work to.
(says 200% but nothig realy happens)
