Within gedit I can go to the menu Edit > Preferences > Font & Colours, and change the font size here, but this seems to change the font size for the application itself, when I print something it still has small text.

How can I change the size of the text I'm writing, not the application labels and menus etc?

In gedit the printing text size can be set from within the File | Print dialog.

Select the Text Editor tab and change the Body font size.

Thanks so much, I knew it would be a simple but for what ever reason I hadn't noticed that tab, cheers! :D –  jwbensley Jan 30 '12 at 9:54
