Display base font size in a library column?

Hello,
Is there a way to display the current base font size of an ebook in a custom column in my Calibre library? I haven't found any information on this, but am not sure what to search on.
Thanks!

No way to do it automatically. You would have to do it manually.

Sadly ebooks dont have a base font size, that's just a concept in the conversion settings. Th econversion engine runs through all font sizes in the book to calculate an effective base font size.

Most programs for reading ePub default to a size of 1em.

However, some eBooks do put in a base font size specifically. I've been editing some eBooks where the base font size is set to small.
