After gaining some insight from What point (pt) font size are \Large etc.?, now I want to change my font size values according to my preference.

As a follow up from the linked question, how can I set

\Large = 13pt

\LARGE = 15pt ?

In the linked question it's \Large = 14.4pt and \LARGE = 17.28pt.

The size for article.cls with option 11pt are declared in size11.clo. You can copy the definitions and change them. E.g. the original \Large is setup like this:


So use in your preamble (or a local sty).

\makeatletter %only needed in preamble

The 18 is the baselineskip (in pt). Adjust it to the value you want to use.
