# Easiest Way To Make Section Smallcaps [duplicate]

I am trying to make my sections small caps. I have tried:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}
\section*{\textsc{Test}}
\end{document}


But this complains that no bold small caps font exists. How can I unbold the sections and as a bonus automatically make them small caps? I tried looking at titlesec but I found it quite confusing as I am a beginner.

• Do you really want to unbold the sections? – user31729 Oct 19 '15 at 21:17
• @ChristianHupfer I assume that's the only way to make small caps work. If there's a way to get both works for me – carloabelli Oct 19 '15 at 21:18

Taken from here (using the titlesec package):

\documentclass{article}

% mighty titlesec package
\usepackage[sc]{titlesec}

\begin{document}

\section{Test}

\end{document}


Here is sectsty way just make things complete.

\documentclass{article}
%\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{sectsty}
%% \allsectionsfont{\normalfont\scshape}  %% for all sectional levels

%% \normalfont since CMR doesn't have bold small caps. If you use some other font like libertine then you can have bold small caps.
\sectionfont{\normalfont\scshape}      %% only for sections
\begin{document}

\section{Test}

\end{document}


And here is another way using same titlesec but this will make only section headings small caps (not subsubsection etc).

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat*{\section}{\normalfont\Large\scshape}

\begin{document}

\section{Test}

\end{document}
