You can attempt to direct TeX to typeset pages larger or smaller
than usual with the
\mag TeX command. Everything that is
typeset is scaled proportionally larger or smaller. (
stands for “magnification”.) This is not a Texinfo
@-command, but is a raw TeX command that is prefixed with a
backslash. You have to write this command between
@end tex (see Raw Formatter Commands).
\mag command with an ‘=’ and then a number that
is 1000 times the magnification you desire. For example, to print pages
at 1.2 normal size, write the following near the beginning of the
Texinfo file, before the title page:
@tex \global\mag=1200 @end tex
With some printing technologies, you can print normal-sized copies that look better than usual by giving a larger-than-normal master to your print shop. They do the reduction, thus effectively increasing the resolution.
Depending on your system, DVI files prepared with a
\mag may not print or may print only with certain
magnifications. Be prepared to experiment.
