I wrote a text in LaTeX with the font size as 12 pt. Now, when I create a headline the size is also 12pt.

How can I change only the size of the headline? I need a 10 pt size for headlines.


%\fancyfoot[RO,RE]{\pet} %\fancyfoot[CO,CE]{\thepage} 
%\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt} \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.4pt}

ps: sorry about the bad english

 %\fancyfoot[LO,LE]{\textsc{\uff}} %\fancyfoot[RO,RE]{\pet} %\fancyfoot[CO,CE]{\thepage} %\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt} \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.4pt}

Since you want the font size of 10pt, you may also use \footnotesize instead of \fontsize{10}{12}\selectfont as noted by Enrico.

  • Harish Kumar what is the meaning of the 12 that you include on the fontsize? – feedback Nov 8 '12 at 1:20

    @HarishKumar: Isn’t the inter line space the space between the lines? I’d say the 12 give the baseline skip/the space between two baselines … – Tobi Nov 8 '12 at 1:29
  • Sorry Wiki says inter line spacing is synonym … – Tobi Nov 8 '12 at 1:30
  • You might want to say \footnotesize instead of \fontsize{10}{12}\selectfont. – egreg Nov 8 '12 at 7:55
