Very soft question, perhaps: I'm writing a document using classicthesis. I divided it in parts with the\part command. So it has "Part I", "Part II", etc. But the link to this parts, as displayed in the PDF, says instead "Part i",...,"Part iii". How can I capitalize this numeration? enter image description here

\documentclass[ twoside,openright,titlepage,numbers=noenddot,headinclude,%1headlines,% letterpaper a4paper
                footinclude=true,cleardoublepage=empty,abstractoff, % <--- obsolete, remove (todo)

\part{Title zero}\label{part:z}
In \autoref{part:b} we will analyze ...
\part{Title one}\label{part:a}
As in \autoref{part:a}, this part \textit{blah blah}
\part{Title two}\label{part:b} 
\part{Title three}\label{part:c} 

I was asked to provide classicthesis-config.tex:


\newboolean{enable-backrefs} % enable backrefs in the bibliography
\setboolean{enable-backrefs}{false} % true false

What is classicthesis-preamble? – Harish Kumar Sep 21 '12 at 16:09
I see. I didn't realized, now there is no longer classichtesis-prealble, but that information was gathered in classicthesis-config.tex. I'll actualize the question – c.p. Sep 21 '12 at 16:15
classicthesis-config.tex is undefined and causes an error on my system. Provide this file here or better put only the relevant definitions in your MWE, without calling the config file. – Kurt Sep 21 '12 at 16:20

The problem is that the parts option for classicthesis (the file classicthesis-config.tex passes this option to classicthesis) issues


To override this and to be able to use uppercased Roman numerals, add to the preamble

Thank you! It worked. Preciesly what I wanted. – c.p. Sep 21 '12 at 16:54
@JorgeCampos You're welcome! – Gonzalo Medina Sep 21 '12 at 16:55
This solution has the undesired effect of changing the case in the TOC. Any other way of setting the upper roman after the TOC has been processed? – juliohm Aug 20 '13 at 16:00
@juliohm feel free to open a fresh new follow-up question. There, you can provide a little complete document showing the relevant settings and link to this question. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 20 '13 at 16:42
@GonzaloMedina: It's really the same question, the issue is that upper case Roman takes effect on the table of contents of the classic-thesis. – juliohm Aug 20 '13 at 20:02
