In reply to a query entitled "Changing the Font Size", Otfried's reply (dated June 17, 2013) was to include the preamble:


In MikTeX 2.9 scrsize11pr.clo does not exist. Now there are files size10.clo, size11.clo, and size12.clo. When I tried to used the preamble:


I got tons of LaTeX errors of the form:

! LaTeX Error: Command \small already defined.
                Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

Basically it means that size12.clo defines all the font sizes which are already defined and hence cannot be re-defined using the regular \newcommand command. (By the way, it uses \renewcommand for the normal size, hence only the other font sizes get errors.)

So the question is how to change the default font size from the default, which I assume is 10 pt.
