I am trying to use two different fonts in my article. I used the 'sectsty' package to change the font of all the section titles. I now want to change the font of the title of my article to the font that I have used for the section headings.

I also want to change the font used for the title and text of the abstract.

How do I go about doing this?

I want to use the ULG Letter Gothic font. I have installed the font and include it in my article by using


Edit: I have a sample document attached










\title{Letter Gothic and Roboto}
\author{Julius\\ Department of Physics\\ BITS-Pilani Hyderabad}

    How do you create your titles and abstract? These things are very specific to the \documentclass you might be using. In fact, why not create a small document that showcases just the important parts that you are addressing in your question, and allows us to copy-and-paste-and-compile it to replicate your current results. That would be awesome!

I had the same problem. Here is how I did for the title:


In this case I am simply using \emph but you can replace it with your own style.

Note that this solution does not remove previous style. If you need it consider using \normalfont or replacing \oldabstractname with the actual abstract title.

For the abstract body style, I have changed it inside the abstract environment.

    This at the very least is not good style: the abstractname is meant to be pure text that may be used other places in the document. The environment should be doing the formatting. Commented May 16, 2017 at 11:17
  • I agree! My solution is actually an hack! Can you please provide your solution?
