I want to create a latex document for solving exercises online. Beamer is one option, but I would need a full A4 page for writing down the solution with my tablet using a PDF annotator. Since writing a latex article class is simpler than writing beamer, I'd prefer article, but would need 200% bigger font. Changing the format to A5 paper somewhat does the trick, but I'd prefer A4 with font e.g. 24 or bigger (easier printing and PDF annotating).

    With the extsizes package, you can use the [20pt] option with the extarticle or extreport classes.

    Try the memoir class (a superset of book and report classes and can output article style documents) which provides font sizes from 9pt to 60pt for the general text. Commented Sep 26, 2020 at 19:38

Your options include:

  • Load fontspec with a Scale= parameter as \defaultfontfeatures.
  • Load \usepackage[fontsize=24]{scrextend} to get Koma-Script’s features.
  • Load extsize and load \documentclass[20pt]{beamer}, the largest size the manual says it supports.
  • Load a font package with its [scaled=...] option, if it has one.
  • this isnt enough to do anything with. lazy answer :/
