The code below is not working. This is because, I have savenotes in my TeX file, it works when I remove savenotes. Is there a way that I can get the code working without removing savenotes?

Here is the code:

Thanks Harish,

The first problem which I mentioned is that for some reason: My TeX file shows incompatibility error with titlesec package.

Here is the code:

\documentclass[b5paper,twoside,10pt,openany]{book}
%\setlength{\headheight}{15pt}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}       % sets up the margins of the paper
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{charter}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[bitstream-charter]{mathdesign}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\usepackage{titleps}            
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{microtype}          
\usepackage{natbib}             
\usepackage{fancyhdr}           
\usepackage{footnote}           
\usepackage{graphicx}           
\usepackage{setspace}           
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{lscape}             
\usepackage{threeparttable}     
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{caption}            
\captionsetup[table]{skip=10pt}
\usepackage[normalem]{ulem}     
\providecommand\phantomsection{}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{3}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}

\begin{document}

this is a test document

\section{test 1}

\section{test 2}

\end{document}

    Can you please provide your source code for more clearity – subham soni Jan 12 '14 at 12:01
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – jubobs Jan 12 '14 at 12:05

You can modify the code given at this answer.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
\usepackage{tikz}
%\usetikzlibrary{shapes.misc,arrows}
%defining subsection titles
\newcommand\titlebar{%
\tikz[baseline,trim left=0cm,trim right=3cm] {
    \node [
        fill=black!90,
        text = white,
        anchor= base east,
        minimum height=3.5ex] (a) at (3cm,0) {
        \textbf{\arabic{chapter}.\thesection}
    };   
}%
}
\titleformat{\section}{\large\sf}{\titlebar}{0.25cm}{\textcolor{black}{#1}}      %% Change color if needed.
\titlespacing*{\section}{-2cm}{3.5ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{2.3ex plus .2ex}
\renewcommand*{\thesection}{\arabic{section}}

%defining subsection titles
\newcommand\subtitlebar{%
\tikz[baseline,trim left=0cm,trim right=3cm] {
    \node [
        fill=black!90,
        text = white,
        anchor= base east,
        minimum height=3.5ex] (b) at (3cm,0) {
        \textbf{\arabic{chapter}.\arabic{section}.\thesubsection}
    };
}%
}

\titleformat{\subsection}{\normalfont\sf}{\subtitlebar}{0.2cm}{\textcolor{black}{#1}}  %% Change color if needed.
\titlespacing*{\subsection}{-1.8cm}{3.5ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{2.3ex plus .2ex}
\renewcommand*{\thesubsection}{\arabic{subsection}}


\begin{document}
\chapter{Some chapter}
Some text here
\section{Nucleic Acids}
Some text here
\subsection{Nucleotides}

\end{document}

Change the dimensions and colours as per your taste.

Edit

You are loading too many packages and some of them almost twice (charter). The conflict is between titleps and titlesec. If I comment \usepackage{titleps} the conflict goes.

\documentclass[b5paper,twoside,10pt,openany]{book} %
\setlength{\headheight}{15pt} \usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry} % sets up the margins of the paper

Also remove \sf from \titleformat{\section}.. if you like.

  • Actually, titlesec and titleps are not incompatible at all. On the contrary, they have been designed to work together -- but titleps must not be loaded as a separate package, but with \usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec}. Anyway, since fancyhdr is used, titleps is redundant. – Javier Bezos Feb 17 '14 at 17:05
