# Setting default font size to 13pt [duplicate]

Many questions in this matter has been posted and most of the answers are related to either using KOMA-script class or using XeTeX, or using the \documentclass{extreport} which doesn't have a 13pt. So if a report class with default font size of 13pt is required, what should I do?

There's no need to use a KOMA-Script class -- using the scrextend package will do. See my answer to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/30693/… –  lockstep Oct 28 '12 at 12:39
You can also put \fontsize{13}{15.6}\selectfont where 13pt is the font size and 15.6pt is the baseline skip (which is nearly 120% of fontsize). But you have to use proper fonts that can be scaled. –  Harish Kumar Oct 28 '12 at 12:52
By the way, Welcome to TeX.sx! –  hpesoj626 Oct 28 '12 at 13:15
@HarishKumar I guess the OP wants to affect all font-switching commands, as a class option like `12pt´ would do. –  lockstep Oct 28 '12 at 13:24
The above mentioned methods by @lockstep, doesn't actually produce 13pt font size but the size remain 12pt. The suggested methods don't have 13pt as default so they fallback to 12pt!. –  Ashish Zachariah Oct 28 '12 at 13:39
