I have this in my Emacs:

enter image description here

I want the title and headers to be the same as the normal text. What should I put into my .spacemacs file?

This is easiest achieved via the customization interface. You should remove (disable) the height attributes from the org-document-title and the org-level-1,2,3... faces. You navigate to the correct section of the customization menu by using either SPC SPC customize-group org-faces, or SPC SPC customize-variable and then choose some specific face.

After disabling the height attributes by 'unchecking' the box and saving the settings (press C-x C-s or the Apply and Save button), the configuration is added to the last section of your dotfile.

If you prefer to set it from your user-config, then you could use:

  (with-eval-after-load 'org-faces
    (dolist (face '(org-document-title
     (set-face-attribute face nil :height 1.0)))

Using a float for the height attribute makes Emacs use 'relative scaling' (see [section 'Face attributes' in the elisp reference](40.12.1 Face Attributes)).

  • I have tried it, saved it and there is no change ;( It writes: invalid face: org-document-title

    Try adding (require 'org-faces) before the code above.

    Haha, you are fast (thanks @NickD)... I was just adding this, I forgot to paste the correct version indeed. Better use with-eval-after-load as org (and also org-faces) are lazy loaded in Spacemacs. Jun 10 at 12:31

    Thanks it's working now ;)
