There is a option to choose a text size in Accordance.

 

And the text sizes are predefined and I need to choose one of them.

 

But sometimes the best text size I want is between the predefined size.

 

Smaller one is too small to read and larger one is wasting my macbook's screen.

 

I hope I can set text size as I want, for example by entering text size or adjusting slider.

Have you considered choosing a different font?  I have found that some fonts are very easy to read in 16 point but that others need something larger.  Some require more leading.  Here's a screen shot of my "Font Sampler."  In every zone, the size and leading are the same.  Some have more "built-in" leading.

I have found that a broader font that is proportionally short for its width is the easiest for me to read.  Remember that you need a font that has a 'readable' italic (not too slanted) and a nice boldface (I prefer one that is not too in-your-face).

 

Here is a zipped file of the workspace.  You can change fonts so you can see them side-by-side and determine which you like best.
