How to change the font size of a Style Editor article style from 10 pt to 12 pt
Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
With standard LaTeX styles, you can change from a 10-pt style to an 11-pt or 12-pt style simply by selecting the appropriate option. However, Style Editor styles do not accept these options. Instead, you must make changes to the point size using the Style Editor itself.
We recommend that you change the font size of the style in question by first saving the style under a new name (in effect, creating a new Style Editor style), and then changing the point size in the new style. This way, both styles will appear as choices in the File New dialog box.
Once you have opened the Style Editor Article Style and saved it under a new name, you can use the Style Editor to change the new style from 10 pt to 12 pt in one of two ways:
This is the least desirable and most laborious method of changing fonts for Style Editor styles. Also, it may not produce the most consistent results. However, it is the fastest method if you don't already have available a font scheme in the proper font size.

The instructions below show how to change the font size for two elements, Body Text and Theorem Body. You can use a similar approach to change the font size of other elements. Remember to save a copy of the style before you begin.
