Need to identify font in given image  Topic is solved

Postby lexxie » Sun May 01, 2016 5:51 pm

What are the fonts used in the page layout below? How can I instruct latex to use that font or a very similar one? I need to format my title and section heading like in the example using titlesec.
I have only worked with readymade templates before and have no idea how to.

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

For readers, Bernard found (in the link already above) that it looks like Adobe Utopia, and we could use erewhon for it, such as in his example:

  1. \documentclass{book}
  2. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  3. \usepackage{geometry}
  5. \usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
  6. \usepackage{array, graphicx} \usepackage[tracking=true]{microtype}
  7. \usepackage{fourier, erewhon} \usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example
  9. \titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\centering\bfseries\Huge\lsstyle}%
  10. {\titlerule[1.5pt]\vskip1ex\scalebox{1}[1.2]{\thechapter}\\[-1ex]\rule{5cm}{0.5pt}}{0ex}%
  11. {#1\endgraf\titlerule\vskip2pt\titlerule[1.5pt]}
  13. \titleformat{\section}[block]{\bfseries\LARGE}{}{0em}{\noindent\begin{tabular}{@{}ll@{}}\thesection & \MakeUppercase{#1}\\[-0.1ex]\hline\end{tabular}}
  15. \begin{document}
  16. \setcounter{chapter}{10}
  17. \chapter{Green Technology and\\Green Business}
  18. \lipsum[3]
  20. \section{Green Business or Sustainable Business}
  21. \lipsum[4]
  23. \end{document}

Btw. the book is "Introduction to sustainable engineering" by R. L. Lag and L. D. Remesh.
