  • If you want an in-page title (aka title head) use option titlepage=false as documented in the KOMA-Script manual. But for book, I would not recommend to do so. – Schweinebacke Mar 12 at 11:55
  • I would not recommend to use scrbook for documents, that should not start a new page for each chapter. Use scrartcl instead and sections instead of chapters. – Schweinebacke Mar 12 at 11:56
  • Which benefits do you like to use, that are not provided by scrartcl? – Schweinebacke Mar 12 at 11:57
  • @Schweinebacke - the chapters, and all the levels the book suggesting me :-) – heblyx Mar 12 at 11:58
  • @Schweinebacke, you right and I edited my question... – heblyx Mar 12 at 11:59

See the KOMA-Script manual:

So you just need to set option titlepage=false to produce a in-page title with scrbook, e.g.:

And here comes additional text.

in-page title with scrbook

As also explained in the KOMA-Script manual, you can set the option not only with \documentclass but also using \KOMAoptions:

And here comes additional text.

Same result.

But note: This does not prevent, e.g., \chapter from starting a new page, if it follows \maketitle. And note, \tableofcontents etc. also use \chapter (or \chapter* or \addchap).

Private note: In my opinion it does not make any sense to use scrbook with an in-page title. Books should always use title pages. So I'm even astonished that book classes provide in-page titles.

  • I need to put it at "class options"? Thank you! – heblyx Mar 12 at 12:10
  • Do you know how to do it at LyX? At class options it's doesn't work.... :-( – heblyx Mar 12 at 12:13
  • Maybe LyX shares my opinion. Or maybe there is an option titlepage somewhere in the document settings. I never use LyX, sorry. But maybe \KOMAoptions does work. – Schweinebacke Mar 12 at 12:16
  • This is what I tried but it's don't work :-( – heblyx Mar 12 at 12:28

    @heblyx This line is ok. Have a look at the LaTeX code that LyX produces. BTW: \KOMAoptions can be used even after \begin{document}. This would not be good practice, but the code of LyX often is not best practice too. BTW: Such problems are one reason, why you always should add a MWE to your question. – Schweinebacke Mar 12 at 12:50
