How to get (without titlesec) title number centring and symbol after it?


\renewcommand{\thesection}{\quad\Roman{section}} % quad is kinda ugly and adding centre here didn't work. 

\renewcommand\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}%
                {-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%
                {2.3ex \@plus.2ex}%
                {\normalfont\Large\bfseries\centering}%\@endsection {\T} % adding symbol here didn't work.


\section{Cycle} % bonus points if just this work
%\section[Cycle]{\\Cycle\\\T} % is there a better way to get than this? 
  • What is the symbol you're trying to get? I'm not sure the copy-paste worked properly.

  • Why don't you want to use titlesec?

  • @Vincent: Maybe the O.P. prefers to reinvent the wheel.

The titlesec package is really useful to format section titles.

I could not insert the specific symbol in your example, so I replaced it with the standard section symbol.


Just change the definition of \T to output the symbol you want.
