# No numberings, no numbers (section, chapter, subsection etc.) in header?

I am using scrpage2 with scrbook. I would like to have no numbers or numbering of sections, chapters, etc.. in the header. How can I achieve that?

I have the following example:

\documentclass[12pt, draft]{scrbook}
\usepackage[automark]{scrpage2}
\normalfont\scshape}

\begin{document}

%Formatting
\ofoot[]{}

\chapter{Intro}
\automark[chapter]{chapter}

\chapter{Chapter 1}
\automark[subsection]{chapter}

\chapter{Chapter 2}
\automark[section]{chapter}

\chapter{Final Chapter}

\end{document}

Does \setcounter{secnumdepth}{-1} in your preamble solve your problem? It removes the numbering from all areas in your MWE, not only the header. –  Werner Apr 11 '12 at 19:32
Hmm no, I already use \setcounter{secnumdepth}{1} to get rid of the numbering for subsections. But I want the numbering of sections and chapters in the content and in the table of content. (In my case I got rid of the numbers in the ToC too, but thats not relevant.. ) –  algomachine Apr 12 '12 at 8:52

Assuming you want to turn off numbering only in the header: As you are using a KOMA-Script class, simply redefine \chaptermarkformat and \sectionmarkformat (and, if applicable, \subsectionmarkformat) to do nothing.

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage[automark]{scrpage2}

\renewcommand*{\chaptermarkformat}{}
\renewcommand*{\sectionmarkformat}{}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\chapter{foo}

\section{foobar}

\lipsum[1-12]

\end{document}
