I'm not seeing this (under Windows) with 6.0.1.
At step 2), I already have evaluated Integrate[Exp[-24x] Cos[25x],x]. I
type Magnification in a new Input cell in that notebook. I select the
output from that Integrate input. I change the magnification setting at
the little drop-down menu in the window's status bar at the bottom. The
ENTIRE notebook's magnification changes.
