Possible to set the default value for the Printing magnification for a 
given notebook so that this value will be 'sticky' and remain set for 
that particular notebook even after you close the notebook and/or quite 

[By "Printing magnification"  I mean the value of whatever parameter it 
is that will function the same as does the "Scale: " value that you can 
set using the File >> Printing Settings >> Page Setup dialog box -- that 
is, magnify the size of type and graphics appearing on the printed 
pages, while keeping the page size the same, so that line breaks and 
page breaks are recalculated and come earlier than if you hadn't done 

If you magnify the printed output using this menu command, (a) it 
doesn't stick to the document, and (b) it affects the printing of all 
other notebooks also, which may not be what you want.]
