# Determine KOMA-Script section title font size

I have a document using scrbook as document class. Somewhere during the text I would like certain words to have exactly the same font size as the section titles.

Consulting the documentation, I found out that for class options headings=big|normal the section title font size is Large, while for headings=small it is large.

How can I always have the proper font size in case I switch to headings=small without manually replacing all local font size declarations? In other words: how can I extract and transfer the current section title font size to some other text?

• Probably \usefontofkomafont{section}. – Piet van Oostrum Dec 22 '16 at 12:30
• @Piet, thank you, that worked! If you like to post your comment as an answer, I will gladly accept. – jpmath Dec 22 '16 at 12:53
• You could use \usesizeofkomafont{section} if only the font size should be the same as for sections (but not the family, series, shape and all other settings as color etc.) – esdd Dec 22 '16 at 13:00
