If I compile the font of the \title command and the \section command are somehow different. Why is there another font used in the \section command? I want to have the font of the \title in all the \section commands.


\title{Doppler-free Saturation Absorption Spectroscopy of Caesium}
\author{Example Name, Other Example, Another E.}

    Replace \setkomafont{title}{\bfseries} by \setkomafont{dispositon}{\bfseries}.

  • Thank you, it worked! What font is used in the \sections? Is it normal to have a different font in the \title than \section (for KOMA-script)? Sep 22 '16 at 11:13

If you are using a KOMA-Script the font of the title is normally set by \usekomafont{title} and \huge. The default setting of the font element title is \usekomafont{disposition}.

The element disposition is also used by all sectioning commands (before their own font elements). Its default setting is \normalcolor\sffamily\bfseries.

So with \setkomafont{title}{\normalcolor\bfseries} you change the settings only for the title. But if you replace this by


it affects also all sectioning commands.
