This question already has an answer here:

:-) With the following preamble how can I reposition where the chapters start? Meaning each section is defined to start at almost the 2/3 of the page. There is a small space and then goes the "Section 1: blah blah". Can I start each section at the beginning of the page like the other pages?



\usepackage[skip=2pt, font=small, labelformat = empty]{caption}

\usepackage[paperwidth=17cm, paperheight=24cm]{geometry}

\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{ \markboth{#1}{} }
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{ \markright{#1}{} }

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can patch \@makechapterhead and \@makeschapterhead to suppress the 50pt space inserted:

\usepackage{showframe}% just for the example




\chapter{Test chapter}
\section{Test section}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\subsubsection{Test subsubsection}


enter image description here

The showframe package is not essential for the solutions; I used it only to draw a frame around the text area as visual guideline.
