I created a header using KOMA-Script. How can I suppress this header on the first page of a section?

  • Am I beginning to get the impression that, despite its humungous manual, memoir is a "simpler" option than KOMA-Script? Oct 9, 2010 at 12:57

    Why is having an incredibly well-organized and indexed manual seen as a bad thing? The Memoir manual is one of the best pieces of documentation I have ever had the honor of using.

If you're using a document class with chapters (which by default suppress the header on the first chapter page) and nevertheless want additional headers suppressed: Put \thispagestyle{plain} (or scrplain in case of the scrpage2 package) immediately after any \section command.

If you're using a class without chapters: Consider switching to chapters.

P.S.: A minimal example would, among other things, reveal the document class.

  • I was trapped in the wrong document class. Thanks!
