I'm trying to use the same procedure than chapter style with tcolorbox?, for the book class and twoside printing.

But I have the same problem in Custom chapter style with Tikz and the report class.

It's working perfectly with odd pages. However for even pages I'm having an unexpected behavior: you can see that the blue strip stops before the side of the page.

Could you help me fix this?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! In the code you refer to, the length \oddsidemargin si used. You should try with \evensidemargin when the chapter starts on an even page. (See this question for even/odd differentiation)

  • Note also that @-pings only works for people who have either commented or edited the post, so Gonzalo will not be notified of that comment. (And as you can see from his profile, he hasn't been active for over a year.) Dec 1, 2016 at 18:45
  • Just add option toggle enlargement=evenpage inside both tcolorbox declarations and margins will automatically adapt to even pages.
