many thanks for your help. I was reading that file.

I know that a simple workaround would be to set the font size another
value, but why do x and xx fixed values and not a, b, c and d?

I mean (I’m only trying to understand), why are only those two values
(form the letter series) fixed?

Many thanks for your help,
