# Setting default font size to 13pt [duplicate]

How to specify font size less than 10pt (or more than 12pt)?

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?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

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

@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
