# How to format Chapter Heading appearance on pages

I want to have only the chapter heading showing on top of each page without the the section headings. Below is a MWE. How do I modify it to get rid of the section heading appearing so as to avoid the overlap of chapter and section headings on top of each page?

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,oneside]{book}
\usepackage[top=1.0in, bottom=1.0in, left=1.0in,right=1.0in,bindingoffset=2.3cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[lenny]{fncychap}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
%\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter}
\lipsum[1-1]
\section{Some Sections Some section1}
\lipsum[2-3]
\section{Some Sections Some section2}
\lipsum[1-16]
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter1 }
\section{Some Sections Some section5}
\lipsum[4-5]
\section{Some Sections Some section6}
\lipsum[6-7]
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some      Chapter45}
\section{Some Sections Some section6}
\lipsum[4-5]

\section{Some Sections Some section7}
\lipsum[10-11]
\end{document}


It can be done using the commands \rhead and \lhead. The code for box around the header is took from this answer.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,oneside]{book}
\usepackage[top=1.0in, bottom=1.0in, left=1.0in,right=1.0in,bindingoffset=2.3cm]{geometry}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}

\cfoot{\thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter}
\lipsum[1-1]
\section{Some Sections Some section1}
\lipsum[2-3]
\section{Some Sections Some section2}
\lipsum[1-16]
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter1 }
\section{Some Sections Some section5}
\lipsum[4-5]
\section{Some Sections Some section6}
\lipsum[6-7]
\chapter{Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some Chapter Some      Chapter45}
\section{Some Sections Some section6}
\lipsum[4-5]

\section{Some Sections Some section7}
\lipsum[10-11]
\end{document}

• good it works. However, instead of the \fancyplain, is there any other command to get the fance boxes around the chapter headings? Thank you – richard Jul 11 '16 at 15:37
• You should add that part to your question by editing it, the part about the box. \fancyplain has nothing to do with the box, what do you want exactly is a box on the header? – SAM Jul 11 '16 at 15:45
• @richard please check if my update answers your needs. – SAM Jul 11 '16 at 16:05
• sorry for my trouble. I meant the boxes on the chapter headings itself. The earlier one is fine except for the plain chapter headings in the text itself – richard Jul 11 '16 at 16:15
• I responded above – richard Jul 11 '16 at 16:26
