I was trying out some of the different calligraphy fonts that I could find on:

http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/calligraphicalfonts.html

But noticed something odd about French Cursive, which is that there is no command for using it in a section, instead you load it as the default font for "\normalfont" i.e.:

\usepackage[default]{frcursive}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

I was wondering why that is and if I wanted to use this font for a section only, how I would do it. All the other fonts seem to work differently.

Thanks in advance.

  • Which document class are you using? – clemens Sep 19 '15 at 17:58

You can try this

\documentclass[12pt]{article} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}


\begin{document}
\fontfamily{frc}\selectfont\Large\bfseries test
\end{document}

Another solution is:

\documentclass[12pt]{article} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{frcursive}

\begin{document}

Normal text here...
{\cursive My cursive text here...}
Normal text here again...

\end{document}
  • Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! That is a much better approach than the other answer. Note that you can also use \textcursive{....}. – Andrew Swann Jun 28 '17 at 7:43
