Dear Soumya,

The font size settings in "2D Labels" and "Color Key" (these are two  
tabs on the same dialog) affect only 2D labels and color key labels.   
If you are just showing the regular 3D labels that rotate along with  
your structure, the font size is controlled in the Preferences (in  
menu, Favorites... Preferences): change to category "Background" and  
adjust "Label font" settings.  Then remember to click Save if you  
want this change to apply to later uses of Chimera.

I hope this helps,
