I want to change the font size for the chapter title and chapter number.

My code in part is as below.

I want the font for the chapter to be greater than the one achieved through \Huge. Is there any way to do that for the document class I am using?




My current font size looks like this:

\fontsize{<size>}{<baseline skip>} should be followed by \selectfont in order to select the font:

enter image description here




\chapter{A chapter}

Lorem ipsum \ldots


\chapter{A chapter}

Lorem ipsum \ldots

  • What is meant by baseline skip? Is it the left margin?

    @xxx---: No. A baseline skip is the vertical length between the baseline of two horizontal pieces of text... like two lines of a paragraph. <size> is (should be) smaller than <baseline skip> otherwise the lines within a paragraph will have virtually no space between them. Check out the difference between \fontsize{10pt}{10pt}\selectfont\lipsum[1] and \fontsize{10pt}{12pt}\selectfont\lipsum[1] yourself (code; output).
