Hi I want to put the chapters title in one line and uppercase, I found this code that makes it inline but how ti make it uppercase too


{\normalfont\huge\bfseries}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter:}{1em}{}
  • Instead of {} try {\MakeUppercase} – egreg Jul 3 '15 at 17:51
  • thanks this works for the chapter name, I need the chapter number uppercase too – efirvida Jul 3 '15 at 17:54
  • \MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} – egreg Jul 3 '15 at 17:55
  • 1
    didnt work the result of these is "Chapter 1: CHAPTERMarco Teórico" and i want something like "CHAPTER 1: MARCO TERÓICO" – efirvida Jul 3 '15 at 18:00

Use a couple of \MakeUppercase instructions:



  {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter:}



\chapter{Marco Teórico}


I used \Large instead of \huge because I got an overfull line with the latter. I also reduced the space between the colon and the title.
