I would like to create my own title in the scrartcl class. Using the titlepage environment gives me a new page, but I would like to suppress this page break. How can I do this?

Edit: In general a title is set by \maketitle. Now I would like to set my own title style with the titlepage environment. How do I get the same page layout than with \maketitle? Or should I set the title without the use of any special environment?

    Why do you use the environment if you don't want the title on a page of its own? – Ulrike Fischer Jun 10 '13 at 14:53
  • How would you set your own title style? Simple write it down, without a special environment? – Dirk Jun 11 '13 at 6:25
  • @Dirk: If you like to use the titelpage fields provided by KOMA-Script why not use this workaround. Normally I would be the same opinion as @ulrike-fischer but afak if you are using those fields you are able to reuse them later in the text. – Rico Jun 11 '13 at 6:58

    @Rico The titlepage environment doesn't use or provide any special fields. It simply creates an empty page. If you don't want an empty page you don't gain anything by using it. Dirk: Yes: simply write down the title. And if you don't feel comfortable with such a plain solution: Define a command \mymaketitle and use this. – Ulrike Fischer Jun 11 '13 at 7:19
  • @UlrikeFischer: Oh sorry, I mixed it up with \maketitle, my bad! – Rico Jun 11 '13 at 7:27

You could add this to your preamble:


this does it for me.

  • Thank you! Indeed, I implied some requirements that I did not write down. I will edit my first post. – Dirk Jun 11 '13 at 6:22
