I have the below code for a LaTex document on overleaf. I am really happy with it, however I would like to be able to increase the size of font on the main Title, without changing anything else. Is this possible with the \secsty package

Thanks

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[vmargin=1.25in,hmargin=1.5in]{geometry}
\usepackage{times}               % Times Roman
\usepackage[scaled=0.86]{helvet} % Helvetica

\usepackage{sectsty}
\sectionfont{\large\sffamily}
%\usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite}
\usepackage[nosectionbib,numberedbib]{apacite}
\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand\refname{REFERENCES}}
\begin{document}
\raggedright

\hrule
\begin{center}
\huge\bfseries\sffamily Title is using arial
\end{center}
\hrule

\section*{ABSTRACT now uses arial}

Correctly using Times Roman 

\section{INTRODUCTION now uses arial}

Correctly using Times Roman


\end{document}
  • And by "main title" you're referring to "Title is using arial"? So you're looking for something bigger than \huge... – Werner Jun 22 '18 at 19:08

    You don't need sectsty for this. You can use \Huge instead of \huge, or if you want to go even bigger than that, you can just follow the suggestions listed here: Fonts larger than \Huge? – Werner Jun 22 '18 at 19:11
  • @Werner thank you my friend I used the \usepackage{mathptmx} package which allowed me to increase the sixe of the font. Thanks for the link 1 – Bat Jun 22 '18 at 22:08

    Both the times and mathptmx packages are deprecated. Better to use newtxtext and newtxmath. – Alan Munn Jun 22 '18 at 22:54
  • Please don't edit your questions to include answers. It makes things really very confusing for other users. – cfr Jun 23 '18 at 1:05
