I've got a document where I load in the aurical package. However, whenever I use the fonts this defines, I get a Font Warning telling me that the font shape has been scaled. For example,

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{aurical}
\begin{document}
\Fontamici Test!
\end{document}

yields:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `T1/AmiciLogo/m/n' will be
(Font)              scaled to size 11.99997pt on input line 4.

What's the right way to use this set of fonts so that it doesn't generate a warning?

LaTeX font setup is rather chatty: that's more of an informative note than a warning. The fd file for that font specifies it should be loaded 1.2 times the requested size and by default latex tells you this.

The relevant lines are:

\DeclareFontShape{T1}{AmiciLogo}{m}{n}{<-> [1.2] AmiciLogo}{}

Using the s scaling function rather than the default empty one stops the warning.

\DeclareFontShape{T1}{AmiciLogo}{m}{n}{<-> s * [1.2] AmiciLogo}{}

Thanks very much! I'd forgotten about those subtleties of font loading. –  Martyn Quick Jan 30 '13 at 21:20
