The core question here is how I can have what appears on my screen 
(using 6.0 on a Mac) be a WYSIWYG display of what I'll get if I Print a 
notebook (so far as linebreaks, figure widths, and most everything else 
is concerned), while retaining a 125% or 150% magnification in the 

I need the 125% to 150% Window Magnification setting in the normal 
Screen Environment ->  Working mode to work comfortably on my display 
and with my eyeballs.  But if I Print what I see there, what I get on 
the paper has very different line breaks and so on.  What's printed does 
seem to match what I see using Screen Environment ->  Printout mode -- 
except I can't really "see" that mode, because Window Magnification no 
longer seems to work.
