#### Figures captions font size bigger than font size used in document

Hi,

I would kindly appreciate some help if someobody could show me (if it
is possible - ???)
how to give a figure a caption text of the same size that is used on
the text of the hole document currently set to footnotesize.

While placing caption to figures the caption text is of the size
"normalsize" and it is desired to have a caption with font size
"footnotesize"

Many work arounds were tried with the following commands,
\floatingfigure
\includegraphics
\epsfig
\minipage

the web was searched and some books consulted with out success

Best Regards

I think you will find the caption package a great relief then. Be sure to

How to make sure that font style/size in graphics matches with text font/size?
Hi, I'm writing my phd thesis with pdfLaTeX (KOMA script package with "standard" serif fonts, 11 pt) and now have to create technical drawings, schemes and diagrams.

In Windows XP, there's an accessability wizard that allows the user to change the font size for readability. There's probably something similar in other operating systems. I think it would be a nice thing to do for any users with large system font sizes to detect that and offer up an alternative stylesheet. I don't know how to approach this, though, and I'm sure it involves more than CSS. Is it possible to detect this setting?

Font size and plot size.
Using version 7.1, I have a plot that I make and it looks fine. I put a title on the plot it looks fine. The boss wants the font of the title and x and y labels bigger, so I set(0,'DefaultTextFontSize',24); set(0,'DefaultAxisFontSize',24); as the first 2 lines of my m file. Now the plot looks like hell because the title is clipped. Why isn't matlab 'smart enough' to figure out that it needs to make the plot smaller? What do I need to do to not have the title clipped?

font-size starting size
Hello, I just joined this group and saw the discussion "What do you think of resizing 1em to 10px?" I am somewhat confused by what y'all think should be used as a reference size. I was surprised that someone actually suggested ems as a reference. Ems are relative to a selected point size, the width in points of a capital M. If no point size is given, what size does an em become? The browser obviously must decide. Also setting the body text to 62.5% is, well, stupid. % of what? I should *assume* 16 pixels? Bad thinking. And not my experience with browsers. ...

Text font size
Hi all, I've got a piece of code that I would like to be able to run on both Windows and Linux (FC2). It basically all seems compatible, except for some major differences in font sizes. Initially I wrote the code in Windows with R13 and got it all looking good. Now I'm trying to run it in R14 on Linux, but the font sizes are all wrong. Here's a snippet of the code; figure('Position',[50 50 300 150]); axis([0 250 0 100]); set(gca,'Position',[0 0 1 1]); text(0,50,'Test','FontSize',60); On Windows, the text almost filled the figure window.
