I'm trying to customize the header of my srcartcl. I found this question which lead me to use \deftriplepagestyle to include an image into my header. Neat!


However, I would also want to include the section name (and maybe number) into the header and I cannot find any solutions on the web, which allow both (section names and image).

(How) can this be done?

  • Have a look at the documentation. It is simpler than you think. \deftriplepagestyle is far too complex for normal use.

  • I did. What I found was \automark{section}. But I do not see how I could pass an Image to automark and using \deftriplepagestyle together with automark Latex seems to ignore automark. Probably because it defines a completely new style which I then use, while automark changes the "default" style. Actually I called my style "default" in the hopes to overwrite this default style and still get the effect of automark.

  • Probably you don't even need an extra package, KOMA-script provides a lot of commands for running headings. Take an hour to read the sections in the manual. You get it with texdoc scrguien on the command line. »scrguien« is »scrguide in english«.

Don't use the interface for advanced users, use the simple interface for normal users.
