# Avoid chapter in new page

Hello i would like to prevent the new chapter begins in a new page, i am using memoir class and here is the MWE:

\documentclass[french,12pt,openany,oneside,openright]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage[french]{babel} %langue francaise
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor}%insertion d'images
\usepackage{titlesec}
\graphicspath{{Annexes/images/}} %directory of the images
\usepackage{lipsum} %paragraphes prédéfinis
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{titlesec, blindtext, color}

\usepackage{vmargin}
\setmarginsrb           { 1.5in}  % left margin
{ 0.6in}  % top margin
{ 1.0in}  % right margin
{ 0.8in}  % bottom margin
{   9pt}  % foot height
{ 0.3in}  % foot sep
\raggedbottom
\aliaspagestyle{part}{empty}
\renewcommand{\printpartname}{}
\renewcommand{\printpartnum}{}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}

\lipsum
\chapter{yes no}
\lipsum
\end{document}

• Please have a look at Start new chapter on same page – Johannes_B Jun 14 '15 at 9:13
• You might want to have a look at Multiple chapters per page, only if they “fit” as well. – GuM Jun 14 '15 at 11:09
• thanks for your answers, i tried both solutions and nonde did work. – Hamza.w Jun 14 '15 at 16:24
• Try \let\cleardoublepage\clearpage. This will make all subsequent clear double pages insert only one new page. If you are likely to need this later then "save" a copy of \cleardoublepage by first typing \let\originalcleardoublepage\cleardoublepage and then \let\cleardoublepage\originalcleardoublepage when you ant to restore this feature. – Andrew Jun 14 '15 at 16:38

Since you are using memoir, you simply have to redefine \clearforchapter using, for example

\gdef\clearforchapter{}


A complete example:

\documentclass[french,12pt,openany,oneside,openright]{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just for the example

\gdef\clearforchapter{}

\begin{document}

\chapter{One}
\lipsum[4]
\chapter{Two}
\lipsum[4]

\end{document}


The result:

Additionally, you might also want to change the page style; in this case, use

\aliaspagestyle{chapter}{<style>}


where <style> is the page style you want for the pages containing the beginning of a chapter.

• Thank you ,just one last question, how can i keep the page style the same, like the headings and page numbers wont shift to the bottom? – Hamza.w Jun 14 '15 at 18:28
• @Hamza.w You're welcome. Use \aliaspagestyle{chapter}{<style>}, where <style> is the desired style. For example, \aliaspagestyle{chapter}{headings} will use the headings style in those pages. – Gonzalo Medina Jun 14 '15 at 18:44
