Page Styles on steroids (or, memoir makes page styling easy)

Lars Madsen


Designing a page style has long been a pain for novice users. Some parts are easy, others need good LaTeX knowledge. In this article we will present the Memoir way of dealing with page styles including new code added to the recent version of Memoir, that will reduce the pain to a mild annoyance.

We will end the article with a series of common scenarios and how to solve these.

Lars Madsen holds a master's degree in math from the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he is also currently employed as a programmer doing general user support, including quite a lot of LaTeX support.

Lars is a regular on comp.text.tex and the Danish TeX User Group's mailing list. He is currently the vice president of the Danish TeX User Group DK-TUG. As he witnesses a lot of 'normal' LaTeX users, Lars is a bit concerned on how new users learn LaTeX. As a result of this, he is currently working on the third edition of his 300+ pages Danish LaTeX introduction. He can be contacted at
