I found an old closed post related but without a satisfactory answer.

I have to prepare a document with some specific guidelines. 1) Font should be Arial 2) Titles should be 14pt and Bold 3) Rest of document 11pt

The \Large font size I suppose is close enough (would be nice to get it exact though). However, I am not able to get bold fonts. Does uarial have this ability? How about italic style too?

Here is a mwe

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault} 

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
{\Large {\textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}}}
\end{center}

\section{Section Heading}\label{sec:background}
Text here at 11pt \\ 
\emph{italic text}

\end{document}

  • {\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont \textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}} works for me.

  • Thanks for the quick reply! When I try that it does not look bold to me. The font looks a little larger that the \Large too (which is strange, since I thought \Large was like 14.4pt or near that).

  • It should be bold (and look very different than a text set simply with \Large). The emph-text should be slanted. If it doesn't for you you should show your log-file. Commented Oct 22, 2013 at 14:50
  • ok..I think my problem is I have not installed these fonts correctly. I am now trying to figure out how to do that...thanks!

See the difference:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
{\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont \textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}}\par
{\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont Shouldn't be Bold but 14pt}\par
{\Large Shouldn't be Bold but 14pt}
\end{center}

\section{Section Heading}\label{sec:background}
Text here at 11pt

\end{document}

  • Thanks...I realized my problem was I did not have the fonts installed properly. I found this thread to help me out and now things work like your example. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/37120/…
