The LaTeX titlesec package
Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
The titlesec package is a complete reimplementation for LaTeX heading
commands. It provides a way to change the typeset appearance of division
headings such as chapter and section. The package includes two interfaces:
The basic interface provides modification of various division heading
attributes (font size, font shape, text alignment, spacing) with the package
options available through the Options and Packages command on the Typeset
menu. The modifications are applied to all division headings.
The extended interface provides commands that allow separate and more
elaborate modification of the appearance and placement of headings, including
different formats for right and left pages and numbered and unnumbered
Using the basic interface
Add the titlesec package to your document.
From the Typeset menu, choose
Options and Packages and then choose the
Package Options tab.
From the Packages in Use list, select the
titlesec package and choose Modify.
Select items from the Category list, and for
each item, select an item from the Options list
to specify the format of the division headings.
Choose OK to close each dialog box and return to
If the predefined options don't meet your needs, you can use the extended
interface to create elaborate formats for division headings. See the package
documentation for details. The titlesec package doesn't work for documents
created with Style Editor shells.
It is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/titlesec directory.
