I have written a latex file including multiple layers of sectioning. What I want to do is change the tabbing/location of each layer. And maybe also change the font or something.

But the problem I have, is that I know how to do it section by section, but not how to change this for the layers in general.

The only things I found is how to change the section headers in general, but not the text underneath (as well).

This is part of the file:

\documentclass[12pt, fleqn, a4paper]{report}







\chapter{Geordende Verzamelingen}


\subsection{Geordende Verzamelingen}
This needs to be tabbed to the right, bold and dark blue

This needs to be double tabbed to the right, italic and light blue

Thank you for reading this and I hope you can help me out.

    Welcome, what you wants depends on the documentclass in use. Please show us a minimal working example to reproduce your current setup. – Johannes_B Jan 6 '16 at 14:31
  • @Johannes_B Hee, thanks for checking in to it. I revised my question, but it doesn't really matter what kind of documentclass to use. I like book and article as well (only thing is that I have to change some minor things, but thats allright) – immaan Jan 6 '16 at 14:40
  • Not relevant, but you might be interested in the \land and \lor commands (Logical AND; Logical OR). – Sean Allred Jan 6 '16 at 14:42

    As for the need for an MWE, it very much does matter what documentclass you use :) there are general ways to do this sort of thing, but some of the more advanced classes (KOMA*, memoir) have their own way of doing things. – Sean Allred Jan 6 '16 at 14:44

    If the class wouldn't be important, i wouldn't ask for it. For the generic standard classes, titlesec is the package of choice. – Johannes_B Jan 6 '16 at 14:44

For article class, the \section command (for example) is defined using

\newcommand\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}%
                                   {-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%
                                   {2.3ex \@plus.2ex}%

where \@startsection is documented in source2e (see https://www.ctan.org/pkg/source2e?lang=en). (Not intended as an answer, but too complicated for a comment.)
