Best Answer

Document class article only supports 10pt, 11pt, and 12pt. The default is 10pt. Option 14pt is unknown, therefore you are getting 10pt.

You can get larger sizes with extsizes:


It supports 8pt, 9pt, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt, 14pt, 17pt and 20pt.

Package geometry (or hyperref or some graphics drivers like pdftex.def or …) set the paper size to the output media.
