The MWE below creates a section numbering in the appendices of the form A.1, A.2 with A in small caps, but 1,2,3 in full caps. How can I either make A full caps or the number small caps?

\documentclass[twoside,paper=a4,fontsize=11pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\PassOptionsToPackage{style=arsclassica}{classicthesis}
  \usepackage{classicthesis}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
\setsansfont{TeX Gyre Heros}

\begin{document}
\appendix
\chapter{Appendix Test}
\section{Appendix Section Test}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Edit: changing font is not an option in this case. A solution for this would be great!

You need a font that includes small cap numbers. Few do, even among commercial fonts. One free font that does is EauDeGaramond:

\documentclass[twoside,paper=a4,fontsize=11pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\PassOptionsToPackage{style=arsclassica}{classicthesis}
\usepackage{classicthesis}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
\setsansfont{EauTestText}
\begin{document}
\appendix
\chapter{Appendix Test}
\section{Appendix Section Test}
\end{document}

output

(I’m not recommending a Times/Garamond combination, just illustrating how a font with small cap numbers behaves.)

  • Nice example! Also, small caps letters generally blend well with lowercase numbers. Commented Sep 6, 2018 at 14:26
  • Is there a solution that does not involve changing fonts? It is not really an option in this case.

  • As Will Robertson commented, it will already be an improvement to use \setsansfont[Numbers=OldStyle]{TeX Gyre Heros}. I would hesitate to change things to full caps, because that would change the design and damage its unity.

Use Numbers=OldStyle. But I warn you that the oldstyle digits in Heros are ugly.

\documentclass[twoside,paper=a4,fontsize=11pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\usepackage[style=arsclassica]{classicthesis}

\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
\setsansfont{TeX Gyre Heros}[Numbers=OldStyle]

\begin{document}

\appendix
\chapter{Appendix Test}
\section{Appendix Section Test}

\textsf{1234567890}

\end{document}

This is the original, with Iwona and Palatino

You could use Iwona as well:

\documentclass[twoside,paper=a4,fontsize=11pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\usepackage[style=arsclassica]{classicthesis}

\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
\setsansfont{Iwona}[Numbers=OldStyle]

\begin{document}

\appendix
\chapter{Appendix Test}
\section{Appendix Section Test}

\textsf{1234567890}

\end{document}

  • Indeed, they are ugly. Is it possible to simply make the A full caps?
