# How to change Chapter font

Is there a different way than in How to change the font for chapter title with titlesec and titling under XeTeX? to change chapter font, one that uses a T1 font. I am starting from this code :

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\chapter{First Chapter}

The title above does not show any font.

\end{document}


Without any packages you might alter the definition of \@makechapterhead:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\makeatletter
\vspace*{50\p@}
{%
\parindent \z@ \raggedright
\sffamily% or whatever you want here
\ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
\if@mainmatter
\huge \bfseries \@chapapp \space \thechapter \par
\nobreak \vskip 20\p@
\fi
\fi
\interlinepenalty \@M \Huge \bfseries #1\par
\nobreak \vskip 40\p@
}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\chapter{First Chapter}

The title above does not show any font.

\end{document}


You could as well use the package titlesec or something similar. If you want that, it also has many features to further customize the looking of headings.

EDIT: If you want to use the calligra-fonts you'll have to use \calligra instead of \sffamily like this:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\makeatletter
\vspace*{50\p@}
{%
\parindent \z@ \raggedright
\calligra% or whatever you want here
\ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
\if@mainmatter
\huge \bfseries \@chapapp \space \thechapter \par
\nobreak \vskip 20\p@
\fi
\fi
\interlinepenalty \@M \Huge \bfseries #1\par
\nobreak \vskip 40\p@
}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\chapter{First Chapter}

The title above does not show any font.

\end{document}

• Hi, where do i change the font ? I tried \fmmfamily% or whatever you want here, \arial and \calligra but it didnt work. – alfred Oct 14 '17 at 12:55
• @alfred \calligra does work. If you want Arial you'll have to use XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX and the fontspec package. But I can't help you with that, since I never used them. I'll update my answer to use Calligra. – Skillmon Oct 14 '17 at 13:04
• Sorry, that was stupid. I had written \Calligra. But when I try \fmmfamily after \usepackage{miama} for Miama Nueva it compiles, but doesnt create a pdf. – alfred Oct 14 '17 at 14:00
• @alfred I get the following error for miama: "Font miama-t1 at 746 not found". I guess I can't help you because the font is not installed on my machine :) – Skillmon Oct 14 '17 at 17:44
