I've been typing a document for a few months now and I'm using the class scrreprt. I've just noticed that the header font, which used to be sans serif, has reverted back to serif because the koma font "pageheadfoot" is not taking the \sffamily command (and neither \ttfamily). I reduced the problem to this MWE:

% !TeX TS-program = lualatex
% !TeX encoding = UTF-8
% !TeX spellcheck = it_IT



\setkomafont{pageheadfoot}{\sffamily \bfseries}
  { headsepline=on }
  { \headmark }
  { \pagemark }


\chapter{Chapter 1}
\section{Section 1}
\section{Section 2}
\section{Section 3}

However the output is what you can see here:


UPDATE - I've figured a workaround by putting \sffamily within \markboth and \markright... I don't know whether it is "clean" or "cheating" though.


I cannot see it with an up-to-date TL2019:

  • Two questions... How can I produce this file list? Is it enough to remove and re-install the KOMA packages from TL Manager to fix eventual broken installations? – TeoFed89 Dec 9 '19 at 17:20
  • add \listfiles as first line into your document and then you'll get the list at the end of the log file. If you have TeXLive then a tlmgr --self --all update seems to be the best. – user187802 Dec 9 '19 at 17:26
  • I see that the difference with what you posted is polyglossia.sty 2019/11/15 v1.46 so this indeed linked to the latest update of polyglossia. Then this question can be marked as duplicate... Thank you nonetheless! – TeoFed89 Dec 9 '19 at 18:54
  • I have a newer polyglossia. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 9 '19 at 19:07
