# reledmac: skip newline in eledsection

I am trying to skip the newline in a \eledsection but both \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\section}[runin]{}{}{}{}[] and \RedeclareSectionCommand[beforeskip=-.5\baselineskip,afterskip=-1em]{section} do not work. With titlesec it won't even compile, the other solution gives me overlapping text:

\documentclass[paper=b5,fontsize=12pt,twoside=semi]{scrbook}
\usepackage{reledmac}
\Xarrangement[A]{twocol}
\linenummargin{inner}
\firstlinenum{5}
\linenumincrement{5}
\date{}
\RedeclareSectionCommand[
beforeskip=-.5\baselineskip,
afterskip=-1em]{section}
\begin{document}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
\eledchapter{Chapter}
\pend
\pstart
\eledsection{Test}
\pend
\pstart
Testtext
\pend
\endnumbering
\end{document}


produces:

Has anyone got any ideas how to solve that?

• unfortunately, that is a limit of the implemtation of \eledsection. It can't deal with the particular implementation of \section. Do you really need eledsection feature, with line numbering ? – Maïeul Jan 15 at 10:14
• I do. I actually would need to use \edtext within \eledsection* which does not work either for some reason. So maybe I have to find a workaround anyway? – mr. parchman Jan 16 at 10:45
• a workaround could be to add negative vspace in the optional argument of \pend – Maïeul Jan 16 at 12:39
