# Remove italic from memoir headings pagestyle

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:

``````\makeheadrule{headings}{\textwidth}{\normalrulethickness}
\addtopsmarks{headings}{
\nouppercaseheads
}{
\createmark{chapter}{both}{shownumber}{}{. \space}
\createmark{section}{right}{shownumber}{}{. \space}
}
\setsecnumdepth{section}
\pagestyle{headings}
``````

could you include your code? –  Gastón Oct 25 '11 at 12:47
I hope the headings part is enough! –  Luke Morgan Oct 25 '11 at 12:49

Add the following code to your preamble

``````\makeevenhead{headings}{\thepage}{}{\leftmark}
\makeoddhead{headings}{\rightmark}{}{\thepage}
``````

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
