# Change the spacing between lines of section title [closed]

I changed the fontsize of my section title using the following code:

``````\renewcommand\section{\@startsection{section}{1}{\z@}%
{-2ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -2ex}%
{1ex \@plus.2ex}%
{\normalfont\fontsize{10}{20}\bfseries}}
``````

which does the work. However it keeps the spacing (between the lines of the section title, I used two columns article) that I had with the default fontsize. Does anyone know how I can adapt the code to change the spacing?

I minimal example I set up with your redefinition has a line-spacing of `20pt`. You must be doing something else then. Please include a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. –  Werner Sep 12 '12 at 21:07
thanks for the tip Kurt! also awkwardly I had forgotten the 20 in `\normalfont\fontsize{10}{20}` was for specifying the spacing, so i fixed my issue through that remark Werner! sorry about that! –  vince Sep 12 '12 at 21:19
