Org exports LaTeX with default font size of 11 pts. Is it possible to make this font size to 10 pts and also reduce spacing to one and half space ? Regards

  • The general question of changing font size is more complex, as a given document class may or may not support the desired font size. Consider the extsizes package if you bump into this.

I think you can do this with:

#+latex_class_options: [10pt]


#+latex_header: \usepackage{setspace}
#+latex_header: \onehalfspacing

    hi John! love your stuff, I always end up at your website when googling how to do things with elfeed Commented Jul 6, 2018 at 7:20
  • Thanks for this answer. When I try #+latex_header: \documentclass[12pt]{article} this does not have any effect, The document is printed with 11pt font. But when I added your suggestion #+latex_class_options: [12pt] this worked. Do you know why #+latex_header: \documentclass[12pt]{article} does not change the font size?

  • the latex class is set by #+latex_class, not by a latex_header. those lines all go after the class definition. See orgmode.org/manual/LaTeX-header-and-sectioning.html Commented Sep 24, 2022 at 0:52
