I am using a custom theme (doom-citylights) and the size of the font for lines that are bullets in org-mode is a bit too big. Is there a variable I can set within my configuration to reduce this specific font size?

  • Are you talking about bullets as shown in the emacs buffer or when exported? If exported, to what export format?

you can set org headers sizes for display in your init.el/emacs.el like so:

  '(org-level-1 ((t (:inherit outline-1 :height 2.0))))
  '(org-level-2 ((t (:inherit outline-2 :height 1.5))))
  '(org-level-3 ((t (:inherit outline-3 :height 1.2))))
  '(org-level-4 ((t (:inherit outline-4 :height 1.0))))
  '(org-level-5 ((t (:inherit outline-5 :height 1.0))))

these are just example sizes ( from pretty big to pretty small...)
