This is a follow-up question to Question about Bjornstrup, where, in the answers, Gonzalo Medina posted a short script on how to change the background and numbers colors of a specific Chapter format.

The question I have now is: How can I change the font and size of the Chapters titles and numbers? There should be some lines to change in the script but I don't know where ....

The font, font size and shape of the chapter numbers can be changed via:

\renewcommand{\CNoV}{\fontfamily{ppl}\selectfont\small \itshape} % the number

The font selection is done here with \fontfamily{ppl}\selectfont, which selects the Palatino font.

The chapter title can be change via:

\renewcommand{\CTV}{\fontfamily{phv}\selectfont\Large \scshape}  % the title

Here, we used Helvetica as the font.

Put that into your preamble, and change to your likings.

Thanks for your reply. I tried your solution, but I lose completely the "Bjornstrup" style that I had previously. Moreover, this does not allow me to change the font itself, does it? – – Ben Jan 29 '13 at 15:57
@Ben What do you mean by completely losing the Bjornstrup style? My answer shows how to change the size (\small and Large in my answer), and the shape of the font (itshape and \scshape in my answer). – mafp Jan 29 '13 at 16:08
