# classicthesis: How do I remove the empty space after chapter title? [duplicate]

I have the following files:

Thesis.tex

\documentclass{scrreprt}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\newcommand{\bflabel}{\aclabelfont}

\input{classicthesis-config}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Introduction}
\include{input}
\end{document}


input.tex

\blindtext


classicthesis-config.tex

... copied from the distribution ...


When I put \chapter before the \include, what I get is this:

Instead, when I move \chapter{Introduction} to intput.tex, I get this:

I wonder why this is the case.

• That is not normal, your document is doing crazy things and we don't see it. – Johannes_B Aug 5 '15 at 16:10

• Turns out the space occurs only when \chapter{Introduction} is in the main file, not in the included file (see edited question). – oarfish Aug 5 '15 at 16:35
• \include makes a clearpage – Johannes_B Aug 5 '15 at 16:36
• \include always forces a new page. the \chapter line should be in the \included file. (this must have been asked before. i'll go looking.) – barbara beeton Aug 5 '15 at 16:37
