I have used all these programs, and all documents can be zoomed and boxes can
be resized, so the size of the document doesn't mean anything.

You will get the best picture by letting
Texshop open the document to change is from ps or dvi to pdf, 
which is what I do, and then viewing it with Adobe Reader 6.
(You can use the ps2pdf (or is it pstopdf), but Texshop is easiest).
