I installed a font from .ttf via LuaTeX (mtxrun --script font --reload) but I am not able to use it in title with my own size.

I have this:


and I am trying to set this font to title:


This works, but I want to change the size. I found out I can do that with \switchtobodyfont:


But that does not work... Font and font size simply does not change.

When I try defining font like:

\definefont[myfont][Signika at 18pt]

It outputs this:

fonts           > defining > unknown font 'Signika', loading aborted
fonts           > defining > unable to define 'Signika' as 'myfont--0'
fonts           > defining > font with asked name 'Signika' is not found using lookup 'file'

Can I somehow set font size for title?

    You have to create a minimal example for your problem. – Wolfgang Schuster Nov 12 '19 at 18:00
  • I somehow edited post to be more specific. – skuroedov Nov 12 '19 at 21:05
  • Do you get usefull information with mtxrun --script fonts --list --all signika. – Wolfgang Schuster Nov 12 '19 at 21:10
  • I have managed this problem, thank you. – skuroedov Nov 12 '19 at 21:14
  • This doesn't explain why \switchtobodyfont doesn't work where you forgot in the example the right bracket (]) for the second argument of \setuphead. – Wolfgang Schuster Nov 12 '19 at 21:27

I just have realised that \definefont requires fontname of font not identifier neither familyname.

You can find this information running mtxrun --script fonts --list --pattern=signika. Instead of signika select name of your font.
