You mean File > Printing Settings > Show Breaks of course.

However, that will NOT do what AES requests, namely, to allow still 
magnifying the on-screen view (at least under Windows): changing the 
magnification even to 300% leaves the view unaltered.

I doubt there is any way, in fact, to do what AES requests (but I hope 
somebody proves me wrong).  Part of the difficulty is that the style 
sheet may use different parameters for spacing (of all kinds) for 
printing than for viewing.
