do you know how I can make the font for my cv bigger? Here is the code



just to be clear, I want to make the entire cv bigger, not a single item.


Change the first line e.g. to


to use 20pt as basic font size.

  • @cfr Well, this is what the manual says on page 51, and it seems to work in a small experiment. – gernot Sep 12 '16 at 23:50
  • Sorry, yes. I'd already deleted my comment. It just makes the class unhappy, but it does work. – cfr Sep 12 '16 at 23:52
  • @cfr But maybe the user is happy, and maybe even a reader of the cv if the option is used with care. – gernot Sep 12 '16 at 23:56
  • it actually doesn't look that nice... – user113589 Sep 13 '16 at 0:19
  • Certainly not with 20pt, but maybe 13pt or 14pt still works (if you really need it bigger than 12pt). Maybe try a different font; Computer modern is probably not heavy enough for being enlarged. – gernot Sep 13 '16 at 6:57
