I have a header on the second page of my document with items aligned to the left, right, and center. Up until now, I have used the fancyhdr package to do the job.

Based on this answer, it seems like the fancyhdr package is redundant when used with the Memoir document class. How can I achieve the same effect without using the package?

  • Please provide a small but complete document with the code you are currently using for the header. This will make it much easier to help you. – cfr Jul 29 '16 at 15:55
  • fancyhdr is not redundant, it 'conflicts' with memoir (or memoir conflicts with fancyhdr) – user31729 Jul 29 '16 at 16:14

    @ChristianHupfer Quoting from the manual "The class also provides functions similar to those provided by the following packages, although the commands are different: crop, fancyhdr, geometry, sidecap, subfigure, titlesec. You can use these packages if you wish, or just use the capabilities of the memoir class." So no conflict, but no real reason to use them either (so redundant). – Alan Munn Jul 29 '16 at 16:23

    @chris Surely you don't really want (or need) to post your entire CV in your question. A minimal working example is just the bare minimum to show what you are doing. In your case, using memoir. The direct content is not relevant (nor useful). See I've just been asked to write a minimal example, what is that? – Alan Munn Jul 29 '16 at 16:28

    @ChristianHupfer The point of my comment is that you're spreading false information about memoir and fancyhdr in your first comment. – Alan Munn Jul 29 '16 at 16:29

Please note that (very nearly absolutely almost) all questions should include a Minimum Working Example (MWE) or Minimal Non-Working Example (MNWE), depending on whether your question concerns how to do something or how to resolve an error. An MWE is code for a minimal but complete document which compiles when copy-pasted into an editor. An MNWE is code for a minimal but complete document which produces the error on attempted compilation after copy-pasting into an editor.

Also, Memoir has an excellent manual and, if you are using this class, there is no substitute for reading the parts relevant to your document. Memoir makes many packages unnecessary - fancyhdr is only one of them. It is also necessary to do certain things in your preamble and not do others in order for its layout mechanisms to work correctly. Presumably, you are using it because it produces good-looking output, but it will not do this if you don't follow the instructions carefully.

Of course, if you get stuck, people will be happy to help. But they cannot read the documentation for you.

\documentclass{memoir}
\makepagestyle{mine}
\makeevenhead{mine}{even left}{even centre}{even right}
\makeoddhead{mine}{odd left}{odd centre}{odd right}
\makeevenfoot{mine}{even left}{even centre}{even right}

    I'm probably a little late and sorry for being off-topic, but congratulations on 100k! :) – Au101 Jul 29 '16 at 16:22
  • @Au101 Thank you. Though I didn't really do anything, so I'm not sure congratulations are in order. – cfr Jul 29 '16 at 16:23
  • Thanks all, I'm going to close this out. Up until now, I've been looking at example documents with a reference to ID things and then deconstructing them to figure out how everything works. Using the CV as a starting point exposes many of the common formatting issues that I might run in to, so that's why I chose it. I'm still getting used to the nuances of working with TeX, I really should buy a book and just dive in. Recommendations welcome of course, although I am a bit concerned that most of the references that are suggested are really old. Not sure what to make of it... – Chris Jul 29 '16 at 21:01

    @Chris I recommend Kopka & Daly (whatever the current edition is). At least, I taught myself LaTeX from it more-or-less. The internet certainly existed, but it wouldn't have occurred to me to try to find help there, except in the sense that I downloaded the software, I suppose. I assume there is a newer edition than mine, but the basics you need to start will really have changed very little. Unless the book doesn't cover LaTeX-2e (which would be really ancient), it will not much matter if it is 10 years old or 10 weeks. Bells & whistles have changed, but those come later ;). – cfr Jul 30 '16 at 1:36
