# set font for multiple paragraphs in makecell

I can set a common font for multiple paragraphs as for par 2 and par 3 in this example:

\documentclass{report}
\begin{document}
par 1

{
\tiny
par 2\\
par 3
}

par 4
\end{document}


Unfortunately this nice feature is disrupted in \makecell:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{makecell}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{ll}
A & \makecell{\tiny par 2\\par3}\\
C & D
\end{tabular}
\end{document}


As you can see in the output font size got attributed to par 2 and not to par 3.

\makecell is used to enable multi paragraph content in a table cell.

How to fix?

• I would change \makecell{\tiny par 2\\par3} to \makecell{\tiny par 2\\ \tiny par3}. – Jon Nov 5 '18 at 10:21
• @Jon Imagine I have 10 such paragraphs in an already complicated table. – Viesturs Nov 5 '18 at 10:22

\documentclass{report}
