How to change size of fons in \chapter{} or \section{} part

Postby user22741 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:10 pm

Hi, I'm starting using Latex, and I need some help with the problem I have.
I have created document like this:
  1. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,titlepage]{report}
  2. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  3. \usepackage[top=2cm, bottom=2cm, left=2.5cm, right=2.5cm]{geometry}
  5. \title{Nazwa projektu}
  6. \date{}
  8. \begin{document}
  9. \maketitle
  10. \tableofcontents
  12. \chapter{chapter 1}
  13. \section{ sec 1}
  14. \section{sec 2}
  15. text text text TEXT text
  18. \end{document}

and now I want to change size of font for \chapter \section \subsection etc. parts (at best for whole document), but all methods I've tried like \small, \fontsize{}{} don't work for this parts of text - just normal text changes. Now the text there is too large, so it doesn't fit in one line and don't look esthetic.
I would appreciate the help very much :D

You can use package titlesec to customize your chapter and section titles.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
