I really like the chapterstyle given here. The classfile I'm using is this. The integration of this particular classfile with the chapterstyle is making it a bit ugly :-)

There are some things that I would like to do to make it a bit pretty, IMHO.

  1. The chapter number for the first page each chapter should come to the right corner instead of the left corner.

UPDATE: the first point i could solve by changing filright to filleft.

  1. For subsequent pages of the chapter, I want the header to show the following Chapter #. Chapter Name something like this "Chapter 1. Test Unnumbered Chapter" with the page number still displayed at the top right corner as before but without the line underneath. Currently, it is as given below.

To reproduce the results, clone the git repository, and the following piece of code to the Preamble/preamble.tex and then make


  {\filright\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} \Huge\thechapter}

An example of what I am looking at can be found here. See pages 18, 19.

    When I compose a test document following your instructions, the chapter heading looks fine, as you say you want it. So please provide a complete test document (starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document} that uses the class PhDThesisPSnPDF, inputs preamble.tex, defines the chapter headings as given above, with a few lines of main document containing a chapter. And of course the document should illustrate what's going wrong. – gernot Jan 30 '17 at 17:18
  • @gernot: it's not exactly like that. Because it doesn't show as given in the example. – tandem Jan 31 '17 at 7:57
