Scale increases the size, but the text bleeds off the right margin. Is there a way to have the page reformatted to have larger size and not bleed off the right edge?

Use Shrink to Fit, which uses a 100% Scale size.

Unfortunately Shrink to Fit causes the font to be so small, a magnifying glass is an appropriate aid to read what was printed. I guess i want too much. I basically want the same result if the font size in a document in a word processing program was changed. Sentences, etc. wrap to the next line.

Occasionally, I'll copy the text, paste it into a WP and with the appropriate font size, get something that is reasonable and readable.

I was hoping a similar capability existed for web pages.

Using CTRL + on the web page helps on the screen but does nothing for printing.
