Reproducible TextEdit Page Setup Scale: 60% problem

    Open half a dozen existing TextEdit rtf documents on my HD.

    Check Page Setup for each one: numerical value in the Scale:
    box has somehow been set to 60% (and that's the size they'd
    print at, if I printed them).

    Change 'em all back to 100, Save and Close each document,
    Quit TextEdit.

    Re-open the 6 documents: They're all set back to 60%.

    Similar things happen with some but not all other apps.

    What the ?#[email protected]?

    [Mac iBook G4, OS 10.3.9, hp LaserJet 6MP. Other Macs print to
    the same printer on the same household LAN w/no problems.]

    RTF documents do not store their own printing scale, it's just
    a single setting for the application. Set it to 100 and use the
    top popup menu of that dialog to 'Save as default'.

    Ooh! -- thanks so much! That seems to have exactly done it, for
    TextEdit anyway. (Haven't checked Preview yet, which was another place
    where the same problem seemed to be showing up.)
