Is it possible to use memoir without having chapters?


You could use the article option to simulate an article class. You don't need to call \chapter, though it's still possible, having a \section-like effect: similar heading, no page break. If this option has been set, numbering of figures, tables etc. is continuous.

  • Thanks! One further question: When I do that, my sections are still numbered 0.1, 0.2, etc. How do I make these 1., 2., etc.? – Neil G Dec 18 '10 at 3:21

  • I put \renewcommand\thesection{\arabic{section}} and \setcounter\secnumdepth{1} I also put the option openany but this might be redundant? – Seamus Mar 24 '11 at 17:58
  • @StefanKottwitz: Does the [article] option still have any effects with the \counterwithout command? – quazgar Nov 29 '13 at 15:55
