If I use the option \usepackage[automark,headsepline]{scrlayer-scrpage} every even numbered page has the section title in the headings and every odd numbered page the subsection-title. If there is no subsection, there is no heading. I want that there is the section title on odd numbered pages if there is no subsection.

In the following example I want the heading '2 section 2' at page 5 in the output for example.

\documentclass[12pt,twoside,parskip=half-,numbers=noenddot,BCOR=8mm,headheight=29pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[automark,headsepline]{scrlayer-scrpage}
\begin{document}
Some text\dots
\clearpage
\section{section 1}
A section\dots
\clearpage
\subsection{subsection 1}
A subsection\dots
\cleardoublepage
\section{section 2}
Another section\dots
\end{document}

How can I do so?

  • So you want the section information to appear twice in the header in that case? (Once on the left and once on the right?)

The method is explained on page 219 of the English version of the manual in chapter 5 section 5.5.

Basically, use \automark to set both the left and right marks when a new section is started, obliterating the existing configuration. Then use \automark* to set only the right mark when a new subsection is started, while leaving the existing marks in place. This allows \subsection to override the marks set by \section without erasing the latter when no \subsection is used.

[I'm assuming you intend to use the scrheadings/plain.scrheadings pair of page styles given your class and package choices. If not, you need to use \leftmark and \rightmark etc. directly, I think. But I can't imagine why you'd want to do that.]

\documentclass[12pt,twoside,parskip=half-,ngerman,numbers=noenddot,BCOR=8mm,headheight=29pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage[automark,headsepline]{scrlayer-scrpage}
\pagestyle{scrheadings}
\automark[section]{section}
\automark*[subsection]{}
\begin{document}
Some text\dots
\clearpage
\section{section 1}
A section\dots
\clearpage
\subsection{subsection 1}
A subsection\dots
\cleardoublepage
\section{section 2}
Another section\dots
\end{document}
