  • Welcome to TeX SX! Not just after ‘Introduction’, somewhat like an abstract? – Bernard Mar 9 '18 at 12:26
  • Sorry about my previous comment, just understood what you mean. – Torbjørn T. Mar 9 '18 at 12:38
  • so when I use \chapter{Introduction}. I get Chapter 1 followed by Introduction and then I can write text afterwards. I would like to insert (lets say an abstract) normal text between those headlines. – Niklas Mar 9 '18 at 12:40
  • The answer could possibly depend on the documentclass you're using, can you add that info, or even a minimal example along the lines of \documentclass{...} \begin{document} \chapter{Intro} Lorem ipsum. \end{document}? – Torbjørn T. Mar 9 '18 at 12:53
  • The documentclass is custom made, so dont really know what you need. But somethings that is included is: \DeclareOption*{\PassOptionsToClass{\CurrentOption}{report}} \RequirePackage[utf8]{inputenc} \RequirePackage[english]{babel} \RequirePackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter}[display] {\normalfont\sffamily\huge\bfseries} {\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{20pt}{\Huge} – Niklas Mar 9 '18 at 13:08

Solved this by adding the following before every chapter

  {\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{5pt}
  \normalfont\normalsize\textit{Here is the place where the description of each chapter goes. \vspace{0.25cm}}
