# How to change authors font size without changing font face

I am using ACM PROC format and want to change the font size of emails in the author list. When I use \small, the font-face also changes. Is it possible to only change the font size?

Here is my code:

\documentclass{acm_proc_article-sp}

\title{Title}

\author{Name$^{\dag}$, Name$^{\dag}$, Name$^{\dag\ddag}$...\\
\affaddr{$\dag$ University, Address}\\
\affaddr{$\ddag$ University, Address} \\
}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}


Here is the link to the template: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates#aL2

• Can you post a link to the class? That's not part of a standard distribution. Note that if you are using a class for a journal or conference, you almost certainly ought not change the font attributes at all as they will want them as they have configured them. – cfr Jan 5 '15 at 2:20
• @cfr I don't want to change the template. I just want to resize the font-size of emails, and I have seen other papers have done the same thing with the same template. Here is the link to the template files: acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates#aL2 – orezvani Jan 5 '15 at 2:29
• I actually did it, by adding the following code to my latex file: \newfont{\eaddfnts}{phvr8t at 9pt} \n \def\email#1{{{\eaddfnts{\par #1}}}} – orezvani Jan 5 '15 at 4:50

The most simple solution seems to be to just add the \sffamily switch to the field.

Chances are high though, that the journal editors will ust revert the changes.

\documentclass{acm_proc_article-sp}

\title{Title}

\author{Name$^{\dag}$, Name$^{\dag}$, Name$^{\dag\ddag}$...\\
\affaddr{$\dag$ University, Address}\\
\affaddr{$\ddag$ University, Address} \\
