I'm using the ruled pagestyle under Memoir with small caps in the even page headers:


Is there a way to set only the title name in small caps and not the number in front of it. So if the header is "1. My chapter name" I want "My chapter name" in small caps but not "1."

  • I can't see any differences ;-): \documentclass{memoir} \begin{document} \textsc{1.} vs. 1. \end{document} Jun 29, 2013 at 12:10
  • Try with \usepackage{tgpagella} and \textsc{3.} vs. 3.

    Maybe you should provide a complete MWE to avoid such guesses. Jun 29, 2013 at 12:33

You can redefine chaptermark which specifies the format of \leftmark:

      \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
          \mbox{\normalfont\thechapter.}\ %
\chapter{My chapter name}
