I try to do a partially small capital title because of a Name. How would I do that?

A mwe is given below:




Classfile: http://sourceforge.net/p/jacow-spms/jacow-templates/ci/master/tree/LaTeX/A4/ -> the jac2003.cls file would be it I think.

  • Hi! Could you please give us a link to file JAC2003.cls since it is not present in standard distributions. Thanks. – yo' May 27 '14 at 9:23
  • @tohecz. I updated the question with the link. Sorry completly forgot about this. – magu_ May 27 '14 at 9:55

It seems that nothing too complicated is needed for this class:


    \section{BIG\lowercase{small}BIG $\lowercase{a}=A$}
  • I didn't know about lowercase. Thank you for your help. – magu_ May 27 '14 at 11:37

The class is using \uppercase, which is a big mistake: \MakeUppercase would have been better.

In order to solve your problem, you get change the definition of \section so that exactly the same output is obtained, but with better control on what is uppercased and what isn't. The key is using \MakeTextUppercase from the textcase package.



    {2.0ex plus 0.8ex minus .1ex}
    {1.0ex plus .2ex}

  • surely you mean \MakeTextUppercase since that's what you used in the example. – barbara beeton May 27 '14 at 12:04
  • @barbarabeeton I was referring to the usage of \uppercase in the class, which should be \MakeUppercase. For the OP's needs, this can be changed into \MakeTextUppercase. – egreg May 27 '14 at 12:05
  • @egreg Actually it cannot, since I'm obliged to use that template. But thank you anyway for your effort. – magu_ May 27 '14 at 12:29
