# How to align section heading left with revtex4-1 [duplicate]

I am using revtex4-1 and section headings are aligned in the center. How do I modify this?

• If you're using RevTeX for a submission, just do nothing of this kind: the copy editors won't be happy. – egreg Apr 29 '14 at 15:42
• REVTeX 4 has been updated to REVTeX 4.1. FYI. – erik Apr 29 '14 at 15:47
• The formatting of section titles depends on the options passed to the class; can you add a minimal working example (MWE)](meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228)? – egreg Apr 29 '14 at 15:51

Using the rmp option (\documentclass[rmp]{revtex4-1}) adjusts the formatting for Rev. Mod. Phys., which has left-aligned headings.

This also works for the older REVTeX4.

Here is an example.

\documentclass[rmp]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\subsection{Subsection}
\lipsum[1-3]
\section{Section}
\subsection{Subsection}
\lipsum[4-6]
\end{document}


• NOO. It didn't work! I have revtex-4.1 – kalkanistovinko Apr 29 '14 at 17:03
• It would be easier to help if you could provide a MWE (see @egreg's comment to your question). – erik Apr 29 '14 at 17:28

you can use titlesec package to modify the way headings are display (read pack man) in the revtex style, or try one of this

\begin{flushright}\section{Right align section}\end{flushright}

\begin{flushleft}\section{Left align section}\end{flushleft}
