    \textbf (<-- use for a good reason)
    \mathbf
    \scriptsize \tiny \large \Large \huge \Huge \HUGE (<-- use for a very good reason -- the farther to the right you go, the better the reason should be :smile:)

    When I do \Large for example, it makes everything large. But I just want a line to be large.
