My problem is that I need to start new chapters on the same page if there is still space available. I use the scrbook class.
As far as I see I have two solutions.
1. Change the class, i.e. to scrarticle and lose out on having chapters
2. adding selectively:

\chapter{My Chapter}

or I can do the same for the whole document with:


But if I do this Latex is all fact up and kind of ignores its nice visual pleasing features, see the picture. I need to mention that I use for each chapter and their sections a new latex file, while adding them with \input into a main document.

What am I doing wrong. If I need to resort to manually adding spaces at the end of the last chapter, how much vertical space should I add?

    Related: tex.stackexchange.com/a/457713 There are two suggestions: style=section for the \chapter command and alternatively the declaration of a new sectioning command.

Technically no problem:





\chapter{First chapter}


\chapter{Second chapter}



But why? A chapter is more or less by definition a section of a text that starts on a new page.

If you only need to add more levels under section, subsection, subsub... you may add as much levels as you need, see \DeclareNewSectionCommandin the KOMA-script manual.
