This tip worked but I thought it could be done using the Options 
Inspector. The popup menu in the Options Inspector didn't give any other 
choices for PrintingStyleEnvironment when I tried to change it for the 
Selected Notebook - is it supposed to?  (I want to print out notes for 
lecturing in Working since Printout is too small for my aging eyes when 
my notes are on the desk!)
