I want my section titles to appear in lower case small caps. I tried to define a way to force lower case, but it doesn't work.


\\titleformat*{\\subsection}{\\normalfont\\Large \\textlcsc\\rmfamily\\color{electricblue}}

Any thoughts?

  • Are all your \\ typos or do you really have that in your code? Have you tried to use \usepackage[sc]{titlesec}?

  • I use Emacs org-mode, that's the syntax. Thanks, I tried adding \\usepackage[sc]{titlesec}, but it had no effect on the case. Sep 30, 2013 at 6:48

    Is it normal that the command you created is not used with the section but only with the other titles? Have a look at this question and answers, does it help?
