# [Tex/LaTex] Smaller font size for appendix

fontsize

Because of the large amount of appendix pages, I am looking to change the font size of my appendix text. Google'ing returns lots of links on how to change the title of sections, but I am talking specifically about the content text (paragraphs), the title size can remain the same. Any ideas? I am using scrbook and the appendix package.

Are you looking to change some definition in your preamble? If you just need it for a specific set of paragraphs, you can just use \small or a similar command like David suggests (with or without {}).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\begin{document}
\scriptsize This is text in script size.

\tiny This is a different paragraph in {\small tiny size}, with a different sized section in the middle.
\section{First Section}
\sectionfont{\small}
\section{Second Section}
\end{document}


For what the actual sizes are, have a look at this good answer here. I believe a section header is normally \Large, a subsection is normally \large, and a subsubsection is normally \normalsize so that might give you some perspective. A command like \sectionfont{\large} or \subsectionfont{\normalsize} should change the size of all the applicable headers after it.
