This code:

skinparam classAttributeFontSize  18

Wont change any class, to change classes one must specify the stereotype, so this code:

skinparam classAttributeFontSize<<Foo>>  18

Works, but only changes font size of <<Foo>>

I noticed this happening to other properties too.

Could you give an example ?

Maybe we did not understand the issue, but the following diagram is working for us:

skinparam classAttributeFontSize  8
skinparam classAttributeFontSize<<Foo>>  18

class dummy {

class foo<<Foo>> {

True, it works, sorry.

I have been trying a lot of things from PlantUml and I guess I did a mistake or I had more code around that would interfere with this.
