Tiny font size

New to calibre and a tech tard. I have converted my pdf books to epub and now have various font size on the books, some so small that i cant read it. My question is can i enlarge the font size on the books to one that is easier on the eyes easily? My reader is the 505 if that matters.

I normally go into "Preferences", "Conversion" and change "Base font size" to 14.0 pt or something like that before I do the conversion.

Thanks, Saphire. I was having a similar problem with a Steve Jordan book I downloaded last week; tiny typeface that couldn't be adjusted on the reader in the usual way. I deleted it from the reader, chose 14pt in Calibre library 'preferences' dropped it again into my reader, and now I have a choice of all three standard font sizes. Problem solved. Thanks again ... karma to ya! Neil
