Quickly make your figures ready for presentations by scaling font sizes.

supersizeme(1.5) will search for all text in the current figure and multiply the individual font sizes by 1.5.
supersizeme(-1.5) or will decrease the font sizes by a factor of 1.5; same as supersizeme(1/1.5).
supersizeme(h, 2) will double the font sizes in the figure, axis, or object handle 'h'. 'h' can be a vector of handles, too.
supersizeme() or supersizeme('+') will increase all font sizes in the current figure by a default value.
supersizeme('-') will decrease all font sizes in the current figure by a default value.

supersizeme('interactive') will produce a GUI with a slider allowing you to scale all font sizes interactively within the current figure, axes, or object handle.

The function has also been adapted to work with TeX markup strings.
