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

\usepackage[french]{babel} %langue francaise
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor}%insertion d'images
\graphicspath{{Annexes/images/}} %directory of the images
\usepackage{lipsum} %paragraphes prédéfinis
\usepackage{titlesec, blindtext, color}

\setmarginsrb           { 1.5in}  % left margin
                        { 0.6in}  % top margin
                        { 1.0in}  % right margin
                        { 0.8in}  % bottom margin
                           {  20pt}  % head height
                        {0.25in}  % head sep
                               {   9pt}  % foot height
                        { 0.3in}  % foot sep

\chapter{yes no}

    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


A complete example:

\usepackage{lipsum}% just for the example





The result:

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


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

    @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
