I'm using classicthesis 4.1 in LyX to write my thesis and I need help to relocate the chapter number.

The top half of the image shows what I have

The bottom half shows what I want:

One possibility:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{classicthesis}

\newcommand\mychapterNumber{\normalfont\fontfamily{pplj}\fontsize{35}{36}\selectfont}
\titleformat{\chapter}[block]%
  {\relax}{\color{halfgray}\mychapterNumber\thechapter}{1em}
  {\raggedright\spacedallcaps}[\normalsize\vspace*{.8\baselineskip}\titlerule]% 

\begin{document}

\chapter{Test chapter}

\end{document}

    The fact that classicthesis (wrongly) uses \newfont doesn't mean you can. ;-) – egreg Aug 30 '13 at 17:30
  • @egreg hehe! I was expecting exactly that comment from you :-) I'll made the change to the proper way in a few minutes (lunch time). – Gonzalo Medina Aug 30 '13 at 17:36
  • Thank you very much, Gonzalo Medina! I don't know if it's your area of expertise, but I have some other problems with classicthesis: I can't seem to change the natbib numerical citation style to Auther et al., XXXX. I have this current line, however, I cant find the right place to put it: \usepackage[authoryear,round,colon]{natbib} Present situation: i.imgur.com/uyztUCi.png Desired result: i.imgur.com/Dg1matO.png – SplitteMineBramsejl Aug 30 '13 at 17:39
  • @user212704 This new issue is not related to the question here. Please open a new fresh question with this new requirement. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 30 '13 at 17:53

    @egreg now it's fixed! – Gonzalo Medina Aug 30 '13 at 18:02

Just to add something to Gonzalo's answer, this one takes care of the options eulerchapternumbers and linedheaders, which can be passed to classicthesis.

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{classicthesis}

\ifthenelse{\boolean{@eulerchapternumbers}}% font for the chapter numbers
    {\newcommand\mychapterNumber{\fontencoding{U}\fontfamily{eur}\fontseries{b}\fontsize{18}{19}\selectfont}}%
    {\newcommand\mychapterNumber{\fontencoding{T1}\fontfamily{pplj}\fontsize{25}{26}\selectfont}}

\ifthenelse{\boolean{@linedheaders}}%
    {%
    \titleformat{\chapter}[block]%
        {\relax}{\titlerule\vspace*{.9\baselineskip}\\\raggedleft{\color{halfgray}\mychapterNumber\thechapter}}{1.2em}%
        {\raggedright\spacedallcaps}[\normalsize\vspace*{.8\baselineskip}\titlerule]%
    }{%
    \titleformat{\chapter}[block]%
        {\relax}{{\color{halfgray}\mychapterNumber\thechapter}}{1.2em}%
        {\raggedright\spacedallcaps}[\normalsize\vspace*{.8\baselineskip}\titlerule]%
    }


\begin{document}

\chapter{Test chapter}

\end{document}     

Output with

\usepackage{classicthesis}

and with

\usepackage[linedheaders]{classicthesis}

  • You could improve on this by using the right method for font selection as has been done in the awnser you build up on. – ted Aug 30 '13 at 18:08
