# Font size of the headline

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.

MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside]{report}
\usepackage[top=2.5cm,inner=3cm,outer=2cm,bottom=2.5cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[belowskip=-10pt,aboveskip=6pt]{caption}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
%\fancyfoot[LO,LE]{\textsc{\uff}}
%\fancyfoot[RO,RE]{\pet} %\fancyfoot[CO,CE]{\thepage}

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside]{report}
\usepackage[top=2.5cm,inner=3cm,outer=2cm,bottom=2.5cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[belowskip=-10pt,aboveskip=6pt]{caption}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\Blinddocument
\end{document}


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
• Harish Kumar, your solution works fine. Thanks – feedback Nov 8 '12 at 1:22
• @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
