I have install the package for a font similar to Arial


However, in the table of contents the name of my sections don't show in this font but the normal latex font. I have put some subsections in my text, in one of the section, and the title of the subsections in the table of contents appear in the font similar to Arial.

    Could you provide better minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem? Using the same code as you I get a working document. Apr 19, 2012 at 12:40

    Not an answer to your question, but a general observation: You note in the title of your question that you wish to use Arial, but in example code you provide you load Helvetica. (Arial is a "descendant", to put it politely, of Helvetica.) If you really need Arial, you could load the uarial package instead of the helvet package.

I don't see the problem. Compiling this MWE:


\section{The social interaction}
\subsection{Social distance}

I get:

Notice that my TeXLive is regularly updated.

  • It still doesn't work. Is it because I include my section: \include{section} in my main document?

  • @Lyy: my answer is no. I've just tried to include the whole part of my code starting from \section{The social interaction} to \lipsum[2] in a file called section.tex. Then I used \include{section} after the declaration of \chapter{Introduction}, but it still works. Apr 19, 2012 at 13:50
