Kwrite on Man 9.2 rc1 font problem.

I don't know if this is a Kwrite problem, or Man 9.2 rc1 which I tried on a laptop with an Epson Stylus 600.

When I changed the font size after writing a message it appears to change on screen, but does not change the printer output font which stayed at the original font 12.

Copying to Kedit it will print correctly from the Kedit printout. Saving and copying the file to Kwrite - they use the same file name by the way- the printout shows the original font (size 12).

I thought Kwrite was newer than Kedit, so cannot use Kwrite like this.

Is it normally like this. I will soon try the same test on a different machine with different printer.

Is it a known problem, if so Kwrite is no good to me,unless there is a workaround?

Try Kate instead of Kwrite; Kate is fancier.

I've never had this problem, but I've never really done anything that would make me notice. I don't use Kwrite much anyway, I use Kedit for light work, Kate for middling work, and OpenOffice for papers and such. And vi for coding.
