I have problems with the spacing of the section command in reledmac. This

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{reledmac}

% Section 
\RedeclareSectionCommand[
  beforeskip=15em,
  afterskip=1em]{section}

\begin{document}

\addchap{1891}

        \section{Diary, 27. 4. 1891}\beginnumbering\pstart
           Met him in a bar\pend
           \endnumbering
        \section{Diary, 28. 4. 1891}\beginnumbering\pstart
          Was rather happy.\pend
           \pstart
           But not for long.\pend
           \endnumbering                            

\end{document}

does not produce the desired output before and after the section command (the \section isn't even inside the reledmac part).

notice the missing space before the second section command: output with reledmac. notice the missing space before section

When I add \listfiles to the code, this is the log-file:

  • It works here with texlive 2016. Which error do you get? Please edit your question. – Keks Dose Oct 6 '16 at 12:45
  • @KeksDose I did so. It's not an error but an unwanted output – Martin Mueller Oct 6 '16 at 14:25
  • I took away the picture of the desired ouput. Is it clear now? – Martin Mueller Oct 6 '16 at 14:40
  • Works for me too (also TeXLive 2016). Can you add \listfiles somewhere in your document and post the output? – campa Oct 6 '16 at 14:50
  • Both versions (with \baselineskip or 15em`work here. – Keks Dose Oct 6 '16 at 15:00

You can just add a \leavevmode after \endnumbering.

Is it not included in reledmac because I am afraid to break backward compatibility.

\section{Diary, 27. 4. 1891}\beginnumbering\pstart
           Met him in a bar\pend
           \endnumbering
         \leavevmode  
        \section{Diary, 28. 4. 1891}\beginnumbering\pstart
          Was rather happy.\pend
           \pstart
           But not for long.\pend
           \endnumbering
