# Spacing of Chapter Name and Chapter Number when using package sectsty

Hello my dear fellow latex users! I've been trying to fancy my thesis by setting a color to the chapter names and in order to do so, I used the package sectsty, because I am using a template where if I use titlesec everything gets terribly messed up.

The question is: How do I get to separate the chapter name and chapter number. As you can see, it is the only thing that gets messed up here.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{scrreprt}

\usepackage{sectsty}
\usepackage{color}
\definecolor{Verde}{RGB}{99,154,0}
\chapterfont{\color{Verde}}
\sectionfont{\color{Verde}}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Mexican Hat}

Mi casa es tu casa

\section{La cucaracha}

Ya no puede caminar

\end{document}


Though I've been using Latex for a while now, I have never gone too deep to make my own renewcommands and stuff. So I'd love to keep using sectsty, because I wouldn't know how to improve all the template with titlesec.

• Welcome to TeX.se and thanks for providing a minimal document with your question! – Alan Munn Sep 11 at 15:19

If all you want is changing the colour of chapters and sections titles, you can use \addtokomafont:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{scrreprt}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\definecolor{Verde}{RGB}{99,154,0}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Mexican Hat}

Mi casa es tu casa

\section{La cucaracha}

Ya no puede caminar

\end{document}{chapter}


• +1 I've deleted my answer. There are too many KOMA details to keep track of. :) But you don't need two commands if all sectioning commands are to have the same colour. You could use \addtokomafont{disposition}{...} to do all at once. – Alan Munn Sep 11 at 15:42
• @AlanMunn: Your answer made me discover the disposition key :o) – Bernard Sep 11 at 15:45
• It's the most opaquely named key I've ever encountered. :) Worthy of some of the keys used in R packages (if you're familiar with R). – Alan Munn Sep 11 at 15:46
• For me it's perfectly clear (I'm French), albeit I don't know R. – Bernard Sep 11 at 15:48
• Thanks a lot! It's very simple and worked perfectly :) – Isaac Sep 11 at 15:51
