You can probably set roman_magnification = 2.;  (or maybe
default_magnification) in the paperblock to get bigger pitch names.
I'm not sure if this makes the rest of the cord bigger, maybe you'd
have to edit the chord table and add 'size entries.  
See input/test/ for how to edit the chord table.

Hopefully, this will all get easier some time soon.
