# fontsize appear to be not working with revtex for long tables

\fontsize doesn't seem to work when used in revtex4-1 with long tables.

\documentclass[11]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{longtable}

\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\fontsize{12}{12}\selectfont
\begin{longtable}{l l r}
\hline
Reaction & Rate Constant & Ref       \tabularnewline
& 2nd order     &           \tabularnewline
& 3rd order     &           \tabularnewline
\hline
& & \\
Electron impact & & \\
Electron impact & & \\
\hline
\end{longtable}
\end{center}

\end{document}


Does someone knows what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

• Welcome to TeX.SX! The revtex4-1 class redefines the tabular related commands in a way that seems to conflict with the inner commands of longtable, which assumes the default ones. Jan 2 '17 at 18:55
• @egreg the class also redefines all the main longtable internals as well. Jan 2 '17 at 21:00
• @DavidCarlisle Indeed! Well, you should know them better than I do. ;-) Jan 2 '17 at 21:14
• So, is there an alternative way to reduce font size of the whole long table with revtex? Jan 4 '17 at 13:57
