Preserving small caps on compile w/ override


I use a lot of small caps in my manuscript. I write in a very large font but want to compile to a more normal size, so I use the override text option in Compile. However, this seems to covert small caps to normal caps. If I untick the override option my small caps are preserved, as is my enormous font.

Is there a way to compile my manuscript using a smaller (even different) font without losing small caps? Thank you.
