I am using the memoir class for my thesis and I'd like to stop the headings from being italic in the page headers. I am using the headings page style, I found out how to remove the uppercase heads but I can't find out how to get it not italic.

Any suggestion?

As of now (with the italic text), I am doing this:

  \createmark{chapter}{both}{shownumber}{}{. \space}
  \createmark{section}{right}{shownumber}{}{. \space}

I hope the headings part is enough! – Luke Morgan Oct 25 '11 at 12:49

Thanks, it worked perfectly! (it didn't even cross my mind to use those commands, I am still a novice) – Luke Morgan Oct 25 '11 at 13:04
