[Tex/LaTex] Styling the \part page


I'm using \part for defining parts of my "book". The thing is, that the part takes a whole page. I use \documentclass[12pt]{book}.

I want to style the \part in a way that it looks like the fncychap style Conny and don't take a whole page.

How do I accomplish that?

Best Answer

Here's a version using the titlesec package. I've made the \part and chapter styles identical, and roughly imitated the Conny style. You probably don't want to do exactly this, but it should be enough to get you started.

\usepackage{lipsum}% for dummy text

\titleclass{\part}{top} % make part like a chapter
{\titlerule[5pt]\vspace{3pt}\titlerule[2pt]\vspace{3pt}\MakeUppercase{\partname} \thepart}
\titleclass{\chapter}{straight} % make chapter like a section (no newpage)
{\titlerule[5pt]\vspace{3pt}\titlerule[2pt]\vspace{3pt}\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} \thechapter}


\part{A part}
\chapter{A chapter}
