Using the "memoir" envirnmenon I would like to have the same title-style for my chapter as for example "conclusion and outlook". For my chapter I use the code

\makeatletter
\def\thickhrulefill{\leavevmode \leaders \hrule height 1pt \hfill \kern \z@}
\def\@makechapterhead#1{%
\vspace*{60\p@}%
{\parindent \z@ \centering \reset@font
      {
        \scshape \large \@chapapp{} \thechapter
      }
    \par\bigskip\nobreak
    \interlinepenalty\@M
\makebox[\linewidth]{%
  \makebox[\dimexpr\linewidth+4em]{\Huge \itshape \thickhrulefill~\raisebox{-.5ex}{#1}~\thickhrulefill}}\par\nobreak
\par\nobreak
\vskip 40\p@ }}

to create the following style

chapter title

However when I would like to generate the same style for other section generated like this

\newenvironment{ConclOutl}%
{\cleardoublepage\thispagestyle{empty}\null\vfill\begin{center}%
\bfseries Conclusions and Outlook\end{center}}%
{\vfill\null}   

other title

How can I uniformize the styles? (I suppose it's rather simple, just change the above code, but I don't really know how and attempts where inconclusive...)

  • Why aren't you simply using \chapter or \chapter* (unnumbered)? Do you need a concludions and Outlook-section multiple times? How do you want to use this environment?

  • The starred version of \chapter, does not give the special lay-out but again the default chapter-style... May 17, 2015 at 10:19
  • So the intention really is to get the starred chapter with the unstarred look, except for the Chaper number line.

You can define the chapter head for unnumbered chapter quite similar, but need to leave out the chapter number line. I added

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\makeatletter
\def\thickhrulefill{\leavevmode \leaders \hrule height 1pt \hfill \kern \z@}
\def\@makeschapterhead#1{%
    \vspace*{60\p@}%
    {\parindent \z@ \centering \reset@font
        \par\bigskip\nobreak
        \interlinepenalty\@M
        \makebox[\linewidth]{%
            \makebox[\dimexpr\linewidth+4em]{\Huge
                \itshape
                \thickhrulefill~\raisebox{-.5ex}{#1}~\thickhrulefill}
            }\par\nobreak
            \par\nobreak
            \vskip
            40\p@
        }
        \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{#1}
        \markboth{\MakeUppercase{#1}}{}
    }
\def\@makechapterhead#1{%
    \vspace*{60\p@}%
    {\parindent \z@ \centering \reset@font
        {
            \scshape \large \@chapapp{}
            \thechapter
        }
        \par\bigskip\nobreak
        \interlinepenalty\@M
        \makebox[\linewidth]{%
            \makebox[\dimexpr\linewidth+4em]{\Huge
                \itshape
                \thickhrulefill~\raisebox{-.5ex}{#1}~\thickhrulefill}
            }\par\nobreak
            \par\nobreak
            \vskip
            40\p@
        }
    }
    \makeatother
    \begin{document}
    \tableofcontents
    \chapter{Lazy Lizard}
    \blindtext[20]
    \chapter*{Sassy salamander}
    \blindtext[20]
    \end{document}

  • Perfect! Still one question, how can I make it appear in the table of contents although I'm using a starred \chapter? May 17, 2015 at 11:25
  • For all, or just selected?
