I am very new to Latex. For some reason the subsection in my document is appearing in italics, both the subsection number and the text. I have been trying to get them to appear in Times New Roman bold. The following command only changes the font of the subsection heading, but not the section number.

\subsection[#1]{\raggedright\normalfont\rm #1}}

No success with using titlesec package or anything else since most of them are changing the placement and subsection number altogether. Could anybody help at all?

    What document class are you using? It depends on each specific class. – Alan Xiang Jul 31 at 2:53
  • not related, but you should'nt use \rm but \rmfamily to change the family - \rm is not a core latex command and not defined in every class. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 31 at 6:19
  • Hi, thanks. I am using article class. Any help? – Ram Aug 2 at 1:18
