\documentclass{article} \usepackage{titlesec} \title{Linear State Space Control Theory} \date{June 4, 2015} \author{texasflood} \begin{document} \maketitle \tableofcontents \newcommand{\sectionbreak}{\clearpage} \section{Introduction} Hello \section{State space description} \end{document}

There is no boldface small caps font available, so you won't get it. Also \fontsize{50}{50} is not really something one wants to do. What you have to modify is not the \title command, but the \maketitle command. What \title does is just storing the title is a safe place for later retrieval, when the document header will be typeset. Don't forget the sc ...

Here is a rather simple solution with mdframed. \documentclass{scrbook} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Minion Pro} \setsansfont{Myriad Pro} \usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor} \usepackage[framemethod=tikz]{mdframed} \begin{document} \begin{addmargin}[-2.1cm]{0pt} \begin{mdframed}[backgroundcolor=blue!10,linecolor=none] \flushright \textsf{\LARGE ...

From my master's thesis. In the background one can see some (dirty) nanoparticles Code: \titlehead{% \tikzexternaldisable \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay] \node[inner sep=0,opacity=1] at (current page.center) {\includegraphics[height=\paperheight]{bgtitle.jpg}}; \begin{scope} %\path[clip,decoration={random steps, segment length=6pt, ...

I'd be inclined to use tcolorbox and hook it into the \@maketitle declaration. In the article class, you could do something like this: \documentclass[12pt, oneside]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % Just for this example \usepackage[showframe]{geometry} \usepackage{xcolor} % Define some colour for the background ...

You can have what you want with the numberless key. I'm not sure whether you want unnumbered chapters to be in the table of contents; the below code does it, but it's easy to undo it if you don't want. Just use: \titleformat{\chapter}[display] {\normalfont\huge\bfseries\filcenter}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{20pt}{} ...

The titling package allows you to reformat the title etc. relatively painlessly. However, even using egreg's font size suggestion, your title took the entire first page when I tested, without even room for the date. So I've used a somewhat smaller size for purposes of demonstration. I'd still recommend a smaller size but you may have different ideas. ...

Here's an example adapted from memoir's documentation just to give you some ideas. See titlepages.sty in the documentation directory for further examples. I used an example from there as the basis so I wouldn't have to type stuff from scratch since no text was provided in the question at the time. \documentclass[a4paper]{memoir} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} ...

In your example the following works. But it will fail if you use the titlepage option. I also didn't test it with every class ... \documentclass{article} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \appto\@maketitle{\aftergroup\@afterindentfalse\aftergroup\@afterheading} \makeatother \begin{document} \title{Title page} \author{Author name} \maketitle This is a ...

Rather than use a minipage and have to guess the width, usually better to use a tabular and allow each box to be its natural width, so you can left align the text in the box but set the box flush right. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=1in, right=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{url} \begin{document} ...

You could use \noindent right before the first paragraph after \maketitle. This method requires no extra packages, and it should work with just about any document class, i.e., any document class that doesn't modify the meaning of \noindent. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \title{Title page} \author{Author name} \maketitle \noindent % insert ...

A titlepage and its margins are a constant pain for LaTeX users. But a titlepage is somehow static, the only moment you really need to care is when submitting the actual document. Playing around with different margins in one document is possible, but somehow a pain and isn't really worth the trouble for a titlepage, though a titlepage is the first thing a ...

In artcile.cls without the titlepage option, the definition of \maketitle contains \thispagestyle{plain} You can discover this by issuing \show\maketitle and looking the .log file, but the output is quite long. This means that either you need to change the plain layout, or much simpler, you need to issue \thispagestyle{empty} after \maketitle has had ...

The package provides the command \authorcr for breaking lines. The documentation says this is for use within \author, but it also works in the \affil: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{authblk} \begin{document} \title{TITLE} \author[1]{Author1} \affil[1]{School, University \authorcr Email: author1@university.com} \author[2]{Author2} ...

You need to switch to the sans-serif font using \sffamily. In the example below, i have choosen TeX Gyre Adventor (available through tgadventor), mainly because it was the first coming to mind. Using \raggedright, we get text that is flushed to the left. \documentclass[fontsize=13pt,a4paper,headlines=1,headinclude=true,headsepline,footsepline]{scrartcl} ...

Just use an \hfill to force space between the minipages \documentclass{article} \usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=1in, right=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{url} \begin{document} \begin{titlepage} \begin{center} \textsc{\LARGE University of Blah} \\ \vspace{1cm} \textsc{\Large School of Egg Decoration} \\ ...

Closest i can come up with just looking at the picture. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{geometry} \geometry{top=0cm,a4paper,left=3cm,right=2cm,bottom=1.5cm} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{scrextend} \usepackage{tgadventor} \begin{document} \begin{titlepage} \sffamily \vspace*{.5cm} \begin{addmargin}[0cm]{-2cm} ...

Quick and dirty: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[german]{babel} \usepackage{mathpazo} \usepackage{blindtext} \title{\fontsize{40}{45}\scshape\bfseries\noindent Hinter eines Baumes Rinde wohnt die Made mit dem Kinde. Sie ist Witwe, denn der Gatte, den sie hatte, fiel vom Blatte. ...

The reason is that titling wants pairs \presomething{} … \postsomething{}: if one of them is here, the other must be too. I don't know if it's a bug or a feature. I managed to find a logo (not a vector logo, despite its .pdf extension), so I could compile: \documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{book} \usepackage[a4paper]{geometry} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} ...

I don't recommend that \\[...] stuff there, but it's possible to include the graphic file as part of the title itself. (Remove the demo option afterwards) \documentclass{article} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} \begin{document} \title{% \includegraphics[width=0.1\textwidth]{images/Company_Groups.jpg}~ \\[1cm] xxxxxxx \\In xxxxx } \author{N. N. Arif \\ xxxx ...

You need to use the (representation for) counter for subsections and you had the one for sections. You need \thesubsection instead of \thesection in \titleformat{\subsection} {\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{\thesection}{1em}{}[{\titlerule[0.8pt]}] You can introduce the color specification in the second mandatory argument (affects number and title) or in the ...

A method with changing the \baselineskip -- since it is done in a group, it won't hurt outside. \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,numbers=noenddot]{scrartcl} \usepackage{titling} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \title{Theory of Brontosaurs -- their thickness and Thin-Lizzy-Likeness} \usepackage{setspace} \begin{document} \begin{titlepage} ...

As you are already loading titling, use its methods: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,numbers=noenddot]{scrartcl} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{titling} \pretitle{\begin{center}\linespread{1.5}\huge\sffamily} \posttitle{\par\end{center}\vspace{0.5em}} \begin{document} \title{Evaluation of Security aspects in a Beer Production company} \author{Adalbert ...

This works, but is not a perfect solution: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,numbers=noenddot]{scrartcl} \usepackage{titling} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document} \linespread{5} \begin{titlepage} \begin{center} \vspace*{3cm} \textsf{\huge Evaluation of Security aspects in a Beer\\[.7cm] Production company} \end{center} \end{titlepage} \end{document} A ...

Use \maketitle in a separate frame. The following is true for the standard classes, I did not check for beamer, but I believe, the procedure is similar \title only stores the title into a variable \@title \author stores the name(s) into \@author \date saves the specified date. Storage doesn't mean typesetting. This is the job of \maketitle ...

Use a couple of \MakeUppercase instructions: \documentclass{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[spanish]{babel} \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter}[hang] {\normalfont\Large\bfseries} {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter:} {.5em} {\MakeUppercase} \begin{document} \mainmatter \chapter{Marco ...

I think this should do more or less what you were trying to achieve. A title for a twocolumn paper, with a light gray column separator. A bit of finetuning is still needed. \documentclass[12pt,twocolumn]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage{geometry} ...

For standard classes there's the titling package. After the edit to the question, the class used here is beamer. In this case, the answer is really simple since beamer provides an easy way to change the color attributes for the title: \documentclass{beamer} \setbeamercolor{title}{fg=red,bg=blue} \title{The Title} \begin{document} \begin{frame} ...

You can locally redefine the background template to include the information; something along these lines (I used two side-by-side \parboxes for the logo and the name of the University): \documentclass{beamer} \title{The Title} \subtitle{The Title} \author{The Author} \date{\today} \titlegraphic{} \begin{document} { \setbeamertemplate{background}{% ...
