First, I do not find any such printing magnification setting in File >> Printing Settings >> Page Setup >> .... Perhaps this is platform-dependent (or device-dependent?); I'm working under Windows XP and printing to an HP LaserJet. The closest thing I could find in that Page Setup dialog is Printer >> Properties >> Effects >> Resizing Options, where I could set, e.g., 200% of actual size. The result is that the entire printed page does get magnified 200%, but this just cuts off the right-hand and bottom that no longer fit on the page. I don't think that's what you wanted, is it? Second, in the Option Inspector (Format >> Option Inspector), Show option values: Selected Notebook, under Notebook Options > Printing Options > Printing Options, I find a Magnification option with default value 1. But if I change it, say, to 2, and click Apply, still the notebook prints with the same size as normally, and this is so even before I try to save and reopen the notebook. This suggests that this setting is platform-dependent or device-dependent.
