Yes --- except the enlargement doesn't "stick":  Close the doc window, 
come back to another one later, and the later one is not enlarged.

Also, secondarily, doesn't enlarge the window itself --- you get 
enlarged text scrunched up in same size window.

Would be nice if defaults for both of these could be changed.
