the following MWE shows the

  • memoir class with
  • headstyles "dowding"

printing the

  • chapter name on the right of the head of a verso page and
  • section name on the left of the head of the recto.

Then we go to the backmatter and use printbibheading and printbibliography (my document has many sections of bibliography) this

  • gives the right entry in the toc
  • puts the bib section name on the left of the head of the recto page but
  • (PROBLEM HERE) still places the previous chapter name on the right of the verso. I'd like the bibliography name here.

I thank you for any suggestions.

  • I get the expected result. Which biblatex versio are you using? – Johannes_B Dec 10 '17 at 14:38
  • @Johannes_B, I get the OP's described results with an up to date TeXLive 2017 (that is, biblatex 3.9). – gusbrs Dec 10 '17 at 14:53

    @g Ah right, i didn't update to 3.9 yet. I remember that there was an update concerning headers. All the times people complained that biblatex sets the mark, now that this is changed, people ask for the contrary. – Johannes_B Dec 10 '17 at 14:57

    We will have a look at that in github.com/plk/biblatex/issues/627 again. Please feel free to join the discussion. – moewe Dec 10 '17 at 19:23

You could use \chapter{bibliography name} instead of printbibheading.... Like:

% !TEX TS-program = XeLaTeX
% !TeX program = xelatex
\documentclass[10pt, a4paper]{memoir}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{bibliography.bib}
@book{ICoS,
    Isbn = {978-92-801-4198-6},Publisher = {International Maritime Organization},
    Title = {International Code of Signals},Date = {2005},Label = {IMO05}}
\end{filecontents*}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage[]{biblatex}
%------------------Style-------------------------
\chapterstyle{dowding}
\headstyles{dowding}
\addbibresource{bibliography.bib}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\mainmatter
\chapter{chapter name}
\section{section name}
\lipsum[1-10]
\cite{ICoS}
\backmatter
\chapter{bibliography name}
%\lipsum[1-10]
\printbibliography[title={books},heading=subbibintoc]
\lipsum[1-10]
\end{document}
  • Still, this behavior begs the question. Perhaps someone more acquainted with biblatex+memoir can shed some further light on the issue. – gusbrs Dec 10 '17 at 16:03
