# (longtable threeparttablex) table notes font size

What I need is the font size of table notes being 8pt. Reading the package documentations and the questions here, I as a beginner tried:

\usepackage{threeparttablex}
\setTableNoteFont{\fontsize{8}{9.6}}


or \setTableNoteFont{\scriptsize} as this would give me an 8pt when using 12pt in my document class.

Another try was working with etoolbox like in that answer without success.

Well, changing the table note size to \scriptsize manually in the specific table notes of a table worked with \scriptsize\textit{Anmerkungen.} \lipsum, but not the setting in the preamble.

MWE:

\documentclass[man,12pt,a4paper,noextraspace,donotrepeattitle]{apa6}

\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}

\usepackage[english,ngerman]{babel}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage{lmodern}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\setlipsumdefault{8}

\usepackage{etoolbox}

\usepackage{longtable}
\setlength{\LTleft}{0pt}

\usepackage{booktabs}

\usepackage{threeparttable}

\usepackage{environ}

\usepackage{anyfontsize}

\usepackage{threeparttablex}
\setTableNoteFont{\scriptsize}

\begin{document}

\begin{ThreePartTable}

\begin{longtable}{l r r @{\hskip 0.5in} l r r}
\toprule

\multicolumn{3}{c}{Liste 1} & \multicolumn{3}{c}{Liste 2} \\   \midrule

krankheitsassoziiert & \% & WL & neutral & \% & WL \\[0.5ex]   \midrule

Wort 1        &  5.53   &  12   &   Wort 2  &   7.30    &   12      \\
Wort 3        &  0.25   &   9   &   Wort 4  &   0.21    &   10  \\
Wort 5        &  0.07   &  13   &   Wort 6  &   0.07    &   13  \\ [1ex]

\bottomrule

\end{longtable}

\begin{tablenotes}

\textit{Anmerkungen.} \lipsum

\end{tablenotes}

\end{ThreePartTable}
\end{document}


Thanks for helping a latex beginner!
