The \rightmark in fancyhdr is recognized as chapter

Postby templateuser » Mon Mar 30, 2015 1:16 pm


I changed the document from to "twopage". I would like at the header to appear the chapter name on the one page and the section name on the other (this is the default fancyhdr style I think). But the \rightmark is not recognized as section but as chapter, just like the \leftmark.

I tried to add a new command and use it insted of \rightmark:

  1. \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{ \markright{#1}{} }

But an error appears when the first subsesection appears.

Are there any ideas how to solve this problem?

Thank you.

It is important to note that in every chapter and corresponding file, the header is overwritten (\lhead). This has to be removed.

I worked for me, when i used the following in Thesis.cls
  1. \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\btypeout{\thechapter\space #1}\markboth{\thechapter\ #1}{}}
  2. \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\btypeout{\thesection\space #1}\markright{\thesection\ #1}}

And in main.tex added:
  1. \pagestyle{fancy} % Return the page headers back to the "fancy" style
  2. \lhead[\rm\thepage]{\fancyplain{}{\sl{\leftmark}}}
  3. \rhead[\fancyplain{}{\sl{\rightmark}}]{\rm\thepage}

before the chapters are loaded
  1. \input{Chapters/Chapter1}

Return to “Theses, Books, Title pages”
