How to change the font size of body text for typesetting

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word

Most document classes have a default setting for the font size used for body text. You can change the setting by modifying the document class options:

  1. On the Typeset toolbar, click the Options and Packages button Options and Packages button or, from the Typeset menu, choose Options and Packages.
  2. Choose the Class Options tab and choose Modify.
  3. In the Category box, select Body text point size.
  4. In the Options box, select the font size you want, and then choose OK.
  5. Choose OK to return to your document.

Note that the body text font size is used as the basis for determining many other typesetting specifications, such as script size. Note too that some typesetting specifications override the class options.
