I tried to post the present message to the metafont mailing list
(metafont at ens.fr), but it seems to be not active any more: if there's one,
please can anyone indicate it?
I wanted to edit cmr12.mf to see what happens.
So I copied the original file into a work directory, changed its name and ran
metafont on it:
$ mf my-cmr12.mf
$ gftopk my-cmr12.2602gf
. Then, in my-file.tex I put:
, and then I do:
$ tex my-file
. Now, the changes I do in my-cmr12.mf seem to produce no effect at all in the
my-file.dvi output file. For example, if I change the 12pt size into 50pt, in
the dvi file the characters are always 12pt small.
Can anyone explain why? What am I missing?
Please pardon the basicness of the question.
