In the past it was possible to set the font and size for printing when

Current, I have the font size for the editor set at 8 pt, because that 
is the size I want to print. For editing I have to increase the font 
(Ctrl-+) for every document manually to make it readable at all. Is 
there a better way to have the two different font sizes by default?
When I want to print a text file, I copy its content into a print template, in
between the <pre></pre> tags, and adjust the print size and font in the template
before printing the file from a web browser:


In the past (and current KDE3) kwrite/kate print in the font size selected in
the editor. You can explicitly set the header and footer font size
independently with the [Choose Font] butter under the Header/Footer tab of the
print dialog.

If current kde isn't sending the selected font size information to the printer
when you print -- that is a bug.

If you think the recent Qt5/6 debacle has been scary ... just wait until Gtk4
(no + in name anymore -- the teacher would no longer give it one when it was
turned in for a grade...).

Yes, I can select the font size to be printed for the header/footer. Not for the body of the text, as it used to be in the past.
