I'm using a conference's suggested document style file. In my main.tex, I've added


which typesets the body correctly. However, the title & all the section headings still use the "default" font.

What are some typical reasons for this, and how can I try to fix it?

(I do not have titlesec or sectsty included -- not in my main or in the conference cls file.)

  • This could be because the title font has been explicitly defined by the class itself to use one particular font. You will need to redefine the font used for titles. – Al-Motasem Aldaoudeyeh Mar 24 at 4:50

    What is your document class? Please add an MWE! With article the fonts seem to be the same (output). – JouleV Mar 24 at 5:06
  • @Al-MotasemAldaoudeyeh you're right. I found some code in the doc class that specifies those upfront. So maybe I shouldn't change them after all... – Covi Mar 24 at 5:11

    I would suggest you not mess with the fonts at all for a conference paper (substance over style). That being said, try redefining \normalfont. – John Kormylo Mar 24 at 5:38

    the whole point of using conference or journal class is that the editors of the proceedings get to choose fonts and design and authors lose that freedom. It's almost always a bad idea, and sometimes a block on submission, to use such a class then change the design. – David Carlisle Mar 24 at 9:17
