I'm using fancyhdr to make customs headings and I would like to know if there is a way to get rid of the "chapter" when I use \leftmark in my header ? The document is in oneside report.

You might consider using titleps, that comes with titlesec instead.You would have to write something like that in your preamble:

  • It worked well, thank you ! More of that, it look likes titleps can do more things than fancyhdr. – TekReport May 26 '15 at 17:26
  • I'm not sure it can do more things, but I think it's easier or more intuitive to use (you don't have to struggle with marks if you don't want to). – Bernard May 26 '15 at 17:31
