I have used \markboth to specify specific text in certain sections of my document. Now in the middle part of the documents (the real chapters), I want to chapter name left and the section name right. I used \chaptermark, but intro keeps showing. I want to keep this as simple as possible and just use markboth if possible, it would seem I am doing something simple wrong...


\usepackage[dottedtoc, floatperchapter, parts]{classicthesis}


\chapter[Short title]{Full title}
\markboth{\thechapter.\ #1}{}}


I managed to print the chapter number + title on the left with the following command. Now I just need the section number + title on the right.

 \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\chaptername}\ \spacedlowsmallcaps{\thechapter}.\ #1}{}}

I have tried \markrigth but that does not work. Any ideas? I am sure this is pretty simple.

  • \markboth{\leftmark}{\rightmark}

  • That was the first one I tried, but it keeps showing introduction.

  • Because \chapter does not update using markboth. But since you want an unnumbered chapter and a toc entry and updated headers; use the proper command \addchap

The following code fixed it for me. Be sure to put this before you first chapter title occurs.

 \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\chaptername}\ \spacedlowsmallcaps{\thechapter}.\ #1}{}}

 \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{ \markright{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\thesection}.\ \spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}{} }
