Hi!

I have just
been using Miktex and Lyx for a week and I wonder if you could give me a
helping hand?
I have Lyx 1.6 and Miktex
2.8.

I want to
change the normal font size in Lyx to 11.5pt but I just don’t understand what
to do.  I used the instructions from http://wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/ChangeFontUsingLatex
, but it’s not working.

I entered this in the Latex preamble in Lyx (changed pt  to 11.5):  \usepackage{type1cm}

\renewcommand\normalsize{%

\@setfontsize\normalsize{13pt}{14.5pt}%

\abovedisplayskip 12\p@ \@plus3\p@
\@minus7\p@

\abovedisplayshortskip \z@ \@plus3\p@

\belowdisplayshortskip 6.5\p@ \@plus3.5\p@
\@minus3\p@

\belowdisplayskip \abovedisplayskip

\let\@listi\@listI}\normalsize

Nothing happends.
Is there anything else I have to do or change?
