# Customizing clean thesis

I am using the cleanthesis template. In this template, there is no paragraph by default.

As explained in Getting back the paragraph in cleanThesis?, the paragraph can be re-established by commenting out

\setlength{\parindent}{0em}


in the style class and

parskip=full


in

\documentclass[%
paper=A4,                   % paper size --> A4 is default in Germany
twoside=true,               % onesite or twoside printing
openright,                  % doublepage cleaning ends up right side
%parskip=full,              % spacing value / method for paragraphs
chapterprefix=true,         % prefix for chapter marks
11pt,                       % font size
bibliography=totoc,         % include bib in toc
listof=totoc,               % include listof entries in toc
titlepage=on,               % own page for each title page
captions=tableabove,        % display table captions above the float env
draft=false,                % value for draft version
]{scrreprt}%


After changing this, the header of each chapter does look very crowded and the chapter title is not anymore on the bottom line. How can I keep the paragraph without destroying the header of each chapter?

If the answer is "Build your own thesis template", then I would like to know how I can reproduce the same header of each chapter in the memoir class.

Before re-establish paragraph:

Without changing anything in cleanthesis.sty, add the following lines in your document, just before \begin{document}

\makeatletter
\pretocmd{\Hy@org@chapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{}
\pretocmd{\H@old@schapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{}
\pretocmd{\cleanchapterquote}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{}
\apptocmd{\Hy@org@chapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=false}}{}{}
\apptocmd{\H@old@schapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=false}}{}{}
\apptocmd{\cleanchapterquote}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=false}\vspace*{\baselineskip}}{}{}
\makeatother


Output:

In cleanthesis.sty replace -2.1em by -1.1em or something that you like

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]%
{\usekomafont{chapter}}%
{\vspace{-8em}\raggedleft{%
{\color{ctcolorchapterline}%
