I'm trying to have no indentation in first line after section title. Changing the argument of \setbeforesecskip and \setaftersecskipto positive and negative value seem not to help (just "1sp" in\setaftersecskip gets some results but section title looks different then).

I noticed it's a tricky topic in memoir.

\documentclass[10pt,twoside, openright,twocolumn]{memoir} 

% Section rules

\setaftersecskip {-1sp} 
\setsecnumformat{\csname  the#1\endcsname\par\nobreak\vspace{-0.1cm} 
\SecRule \par\nobreak } 

\fontsize{13pt}{12pt} \bfseries \centering \MakeUppercase{#1} \par 



Following the replies to these topics did not help First paragraph of section becomes indented after setting \setbeforesecskip (memoir class) First paragraph indented after section title in margin

  • Thanks @cfr but it's the opposite: text should not be indented after a section heading, the first line should start where the other start with no extra space.
