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.

Thanks !

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


This will produce a header with the number and title of current chapter centred, page number on the right and a text-wide rule under these elements. If you don't want a rule, don't write the command for it. If you prefer the page number centred in the footer, write it as

  • It worked well, thank you ! More of that, it look likes titleps can do more things than fancyhdr.

  • 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).
