I am using this code to plot a graph, and I am trying to make the font of the legend bigger.

ListLogLogPlot[{Sort[moby]}, PlotRange -> Full, Joined -> True, 
    PlotLegend -> {"Moby Dick"}, LegendPosition -> {0.30, -0.20}, LegendShadow -> None, 
    LegendBorder -> None, PlotStyle -> {Dashed}, BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 14}]

This only seems to change the font size of the labels on my axis. But I also want the legend to be size 14.

Try using Style in the option values for PlotLegend->{...}. For example:

  Plot[{Sin[x], Cos[x]}, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, 
  PlotLegend -> {Style["sine", Red, Bold, 18], "cosine"},  
  LegendLabel -> None]


enter image description here

Is there also a way to do the same thing for all entries in the legend at once, you think? I have a plot with five function in the same graph, and there must be a simpler way than using Style five times. – Jelle May 8 '13 at 15:43
