Font scaling… I found a suggestion on scaling, and inserted:


In the preamble. Didn’t change anything. The discussion said that this should 
only change the body font size, and not the section headings. To scale section 
headings, the suggestion was to add package sectsty, and the set the scaling 
for each section heading. I got an error message when I did

A couple of more tweaks I need to do…

  1.  Is there an easy way to suppress page numbering?
  2.  I have changed font family to Times Roman. Is it possible to use odd body 
font sizes? The template I’m trying to emulate uses 10.5 pt font… ☹
  3.  Is it possible to specify the Times Roman font also for the document 
*title*? (The title looks as if it uses computer modern, or something… but I 
may be wrong.)
  4.  Can I remove the extra space that is above the title? (There *seems* to 
be extra space…)


  1.  Several. Google "latex eliminate page numbers" for a selection.
  2.  This is tied to the font you are using. Google "latex scale font" for 
explanations and solutions.
  3.  If the rest of the document is Times Roman, I think the title will also 
be. You can always check the LaTeX source code by clicking View > Code Preview 
Pane. If you do not see some other font package being loaded, nor any unusual 
LaTeX commands surrounding the title text, it should be Times Roman.
  4.  I don't think there is very much vertical space added above the title. 
Viewing the PDF for a test document with the first two pages side by side, I 
can barely see the difference (one to two lines of text?). That said, if you 
really want to move the title up, google "latex reduce space above title".
