I'm writing my thesis and instructions for chapter, section and subsection are as following.

- Chapter heading :All Capital—14 Font size, Bold
- Section heading :Title case-12 Font size, Bold
- Sub-section heading :Sentence case-12 Font size, Bold
- Body text :Sentence case - 12 Font size

Further I'm having "subsubsections" also. I'm trying to implement these using titlesec. My problems are how to capitalize chapter heading?. How to implement "title case" and "sentence case"? Thanks in advance.

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}{\normalfont\large\bfseries}{\thechapter}{14pt}{\large}
\titleformat{\section}
{\normalfont\bfseries}{\thesection}{12pt}{}
\titleformat{\subsection}
{\normalfont\bfseries}{\thesubsection}{12pt}{}
\titleformat{\subsubsection}
{\normalfont\bfseries}{\thesubsubsection}{12pt}{}
  • What is an example of "title case" and "sentence case", just so it's clear to everyone? I really think such case-settings should form part of the name. That is, rather Some Title than \titlecase{some title}. – Werner Dec 19 '14 at 5:07
  • @Werner : "title case" as in your example, is having every first letter capitalized (Ex. Example Title) and sentence case is with out capitalization (Ex. example title). – Nilani Algiriyage Dec 19 '14 at 5:23

    So you plan on using \chapter{this is my long chapter title}, \section{a beautiful section} and \subsection{SoMeTHiNG} and you want it to be formatted as THIS IS MY LONG CHAPTER TITLE and A Beautiful Section and SoMeTHiNG. Font-changing and size are easy, but the capitalization is a bit much, just because it's something that is best kept the way you type it (you can use the Converting Text to Title Case and/or the titlecaps package). – Werner Dec 19 '14 at 5:50
