We have a winner!

Thanks to everyone that responded with suggestions.  Something that 
looks so easy (and probably should be) has become a quest.  By doing 
what Neil suggests below the print returns to "normal" size.  

Does anyone know if you can turn this compression "feature" off or is 
it totally dependent on the print file definition?

Maybe I just need to buy everyone a magnifying glass and leave them 
alone..........
