# scalefnt – Rescale fonts to arbitrary sizes

`\scalefont{2}` selects the current font in twice the
current size. `\scalefont{.75}` reduces the current font
size by three quarters.

Note that the effectiveness of such operations depends on the LaTeX font selection for that font; it will typically work well for ordinary Type 1 fonts, but METAFONT fonts are usually set up to work only at a discrete set of sizes.
