I want to set these properties in my thesis.

  • 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

Is this correct?

  • I think a full example also showing which class you use would be very helpful – MostlyHarmless Mar 23 '15 at 9:34

the answer is like this answer

for text you need


for other titles

\usepackage{blindtext} % just for test text





\titlespacing*{\chapter} {0pt}{50pt}{40pt}
\titlespacing*{\section} {0pt}{3.5ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{2.3ex plus .2ex}
\titlespacing*{\subsection} {0pt}{3.25ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{1.5ex plus .2ex}
