# Small Caps does not Work for Section

I'm writing using \article class and I want to make every section of it centered and small caps with no bold. I use sectstypackage for this.

I tried it this way

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb,amsmath,sectsty, blindtext}

\title{\scshape This Is The Title\\\large and this is another text}
\author{Azlif}
\date{Somewhere in 2018}
\sectionfont{\centering \scshape\normalfont}
\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Abstrak}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
This paper only contains blind text
\end{abstract}
\section{I Hope I can Be a Small Caps Someday}
\blind text
\section{Other Section}
\section{Yet Another Section}
\end{document}


I also try adding \usepackage[sc]{titlesec}. It works but then the section heading is not centered.

• If you stare long enough at \scshape\normalfont perhaps you can find the solution your self. Hint: what does \normalfont do? Hint2: try changing the order. Also probably a good idea to add \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} – daleif Jan 10 '18 at 14:25
• Oh gosh. It works perfectly. I should've just put that \normalfont at the front. – Azlif Jan 10 '18 at 14:26

It is a fairly simple human error. \normalfont resets the font settings, so \scshape\normalfont is the same as just \normalfont.

Try \normalfont\scshape.

With titlesec, just add to your preamble

\titleformat*{\filcenter\scshape}
