remove headrule from specific pages/sections

Postby Fed89 » Fri Apr 21, 2017 11:20 am

Hello everyone,

I am using lyx to write my thesis with memoir class.
As i did not like the default headers/footers, i redefined them like this
  1. \uppercaseheads \nouppercaseheads
  2. \makeevenhead{headings}{\slshape\leftmark}{}{}
  3. \makeoddhead{headings}{}{}{\slshape\leftmark}
  4. \makeevenfoot{headings}{\thepage}{}{}
  5. \makeoddfoot{headings}{}{}{\thepage}
  6. \makeheadrule{headings}{\textwidth}{\normalrulethickness}

So i have page number in the bottom-exterior of the pages and the chapter name in the top-exterior corner of the pages.
I have headrule. I generally like the way the headrule is displayed (not in the chapter page, where there is no header; and not in the empty double pages, for example at the end of a chapter).
But for example it appears on the second page of the the ToC, LoF and LoT. As they are only 1 or 2 page long each, i removed their headers
  1. \markboth{}{}

so i would like them not to have the headrule either... (see attached screenshot)
How can i achieve this?

Thanks in advance for the help!

quick and easy: set


before ToC, LoF, LoT, after it set again


Alternatively you could define an own page style without rule.
