Thanks to @AlanMunn for the answers given in the question asked in the link.

Chapter number and chapter title in one line

What I want is:

CHAPTER ONE: the chapter name/title

and not

Chapter 1: The chapter name/title

I was able to do this

CHAPTER 1: the chapter name/title

I need to change "1" to "ONE" without affecting anything on the toc.

I used the following code

{\normalfont\large\bfseries}{\MakeUppercase\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter:}{1em}{}

\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{0pt}{0pt}% this reduces the space between the chapter title and section

Please how do I go about it?

  • Welcome to TeX SX! Do you also want CHAPTER ONE in the table of contents?

Since you load fmtcount, it is particularly easy for the chapter heading:

\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]{\normalfont\large\bfseries}{\MakeUppercase\chaptertitlename\ \NUMBERstring{chapter}:}{1em}{}
  • thanks so much. It worked.
