How to consistently increase font size ?

Postby clemens on Tue Sep 1st, 2009

Hello,

I am using Lyx with TexLive and XeTex.
When I exported my file to pdf I noticed that the dfefault font size is a bit too small. I would like to increase it by one or two points, but I would like to do it in a consistent manner, so that all the parts of the text that are written in small, smaller etc. will change size consistently and in accordance to the changes in the normal characters.
Cheers

Have you tried adding this comment in the preamble??? Something like:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[10pt]{report}


You can change the size of the font in there. It will affect the whole document.

Cheers

Try going to Document --> Settings --> Fonts, and change Base size (top right) to 11pt or 12pt. I think 10pt is the default, for some standard classes at least.
