### Capital letter

Hello everyone. I am using a ready master thesis template that I think looks nice in general, however I have a one problem that drives me crazy. Every time when I start a new section, it never begins with a capital letter. Something like this:

would give me something like this (please see the attachment)

I would like to be able to get a capital letter in the name of the section: i.e 1.1 Cubic rings.
Thanks for any help

That's caused by the classicthesis style. In classicthesis.sty you can find:


Redefine as you like, such as removing \spacedlowsmallcaps and \textsc, where you don't desire it. Use \bfseries there instead, so you don't need \textbf in the text later.

\titleformat{\section}   {\normalfont\bfseries}{\thesection}{1em}{}

Thank you Stefan, it helped. I just have 2 more issues. I would really appreciate if you could give me some hints on that.
1) In contents, sections begin with capital letter but chapters don't. I tried to fix it the same way as you did but it did not seem to work anymore and chapter appear bold which I don't want in the contents table. It looks like that:

2) I have noticed that some headers appear bold as well and never start with capital letters, others don't appear bold, don't begin with a capital letter

Is there any way to fix it?
Many thanks

Actually it's an issue with combining small caps style and bold face. Not many fonts provide this combination. Here, \textbf overrides \testsc.

You could see the original classicthesis style, if you would remove \usepackage[osf]{libertine} or just comment it out.

Seems like a decision to either use classicthesis or Libertine, or to fix and change all those classicthesis caps settings.

Thank you Stefan. After I have removed \usepackage[osf]{libertine} everything looks as I wanted it to look like:)
