Customizing font and title (memoir + titlesec)

Postby shankar_kizzie » Thu Sep 03, 2020 5:13 pm


In the attachment, one can see a screenshot with a subsection.
In it, the title is written in italics, and the number is in normal font.
It would be great to know:
1. Which font is the title?
2. Which font is the number?
3. How to achieve these separate treatments for the title and the number?

What I have tried. I used some advice from StackOverflow to figure out the font
is most likely Garamond. Also, I've used `memoir` class, `titlesec` package
to customize the subsection titles as follows:
However, this changes the section number's shape as well.
I also used `\usepackage{CormorantGaramond}`. Somehow, I can feel my subsection's name in italics is somehow
less "saturated" or "dense".

How to solve the above 3 problems?

I never used memoir, but AFAIK you should not use titlesec with memoir. memoir has its own interface to change the formatting of the headings. See section 6.6 in the memoir manual.
