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

\usepackage{amssymb,amsmath,sectsty, blindtext}

\title{\scshape This Is The Title\\\large and this is another text}
\date{Somewhere in 2018}
\sectionfont{\centering \scshape\normalfont} 
This paper only contains blind text
\section{I Hope I can Be a Small Caps Someday}
\blind text
\section{Other Section}
\section{Yet Another Section}

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}

  • Oh gosh. It works perfectly. I should've just put that \normalfont at the front.

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
