I've got an immensely annoying problem, is there any way to set LyX to
use as it's default font size 9 instead of 10? I've googled like crazy & just
can't figure out a way to do it.

I'm hoping there's a way to just globally set this on 9 without having to
insert any fancy code @ the start of each post or anything. Perhaps there
is an easy way by just copy-pasting some code into the preamble that
does this but any I've found doesn't work.

The problem is that I am copy-pasting a lot of material into a LyX document
& will be for the foreseeable future.

Really appreciate any help

Have you tried editing the .lyx document in a text editor and changing the \paperfontsize line to 9?

edit: never mind, I tried it and it doesn't work.

Unfortunately no, but thanks anyway

I'm not sure I understand - the first line of any latex document is something like...

\documentclass[a4paper, 9pt]{article}

Lyx overrides this?

LyX is basically a gui, it bypasses all recourse to latex code (on my part!).
I have had absolutely no need to write or read anything like \documentclass.

I know some people do like Lyx, but I think there comes a time to just use normal LaTeX.
