I am using the amspset package, which can be found here. I am using

\documentclass[reqno, 11pt, letterpaper]{amspset}
\usepackage{fullpage, amsthm, amssymb, amsfonts}

What is the right command to change the font? I like the 11pt size I have chosen. I just want to change it to the font a normal LaTeX document uses. I don't know the command for this.

The default font is "palatino", as you can see in ampset.cls, which contains the following lines:

% use palatino fonts
\DeclareOption{palatino}{%
    \amspset@palatinotrue%
}

% use compuer modern fonts
\DeclareOption{cm}{%
    \amspset@palatinofalse%
}

...

% pass remaining options to article class
\DeclareOption*{\PassOptionsToClass{\CurrentOption}{article}}

%%% EXECUTION OF OPTIONS --------------------------------------------------
%% default to:
% including header,
% loading mathpazo package for palatino fonts,
% boxing problem statements
\ExecuteOptions{header,palatino,boxed}

\ProcessOptions

If you want to use the default "Computer Modern", you have to load the package with the option cm, that is, in your case:

\documentclass[cm, reqno, 11pt, letterpaper]{amspset}

EDIT

To solve the issue you mentioned in your comment.

Since the fullpage package accepts cm as an option, the document class passes this option to fullpage. This is the source of the problem.

So, use the following lines in your preamble:

\documentclass[cm, reqno, 11pt, letterpaper]{amspset}
\usepackage{amsthm, amssymb, amsfonts}
\usepackage[in]{fullpage}

so that fullpage is loaded with the default option in instead of cm.

  • The only problem I have with computer modern is that it completely gets rid of the margins for some reason, which makes it look unprofessional. If I could get this font without eliminating the margins, that would be great.

  • CM has nothing to do with the margins, please elaborate...

class option cm in that class gives the "standard" computer modern fonts.

class option palatino tells the class to use the mathpazo package, which also gives decent output (indeed, i prefer palatino to computer modern).
