I'm looking for a LaTeX document class which would fit a simple one-page assignment with mostly text. I'd still want sections and subsections like those in article, but would like:

  • more vertical space
  • no page numbering
  • much smaller title, author name and date

Is there such a document class out there?

I tried to do this manually in an article. The title, author name and date can be solved using fancy header instead, and page numbering is easy to remove, but I can't remove the excessive vertical space on top and bottom. Also, such a solution would be worse from a re-usability viewpoint.

Have you tried using the geometry package? –  Peter Grill Sep 26 '11 at 16:41

There's no need to create a distinct class -- just load the geometry package and tweak the margin settings to your liking.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[hscale=0.7,vscale=0.8]{geometry}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\pagenumbering{gobble}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-5]

\end{document}

Section 5.3 Body Size of the geometry package documentationprovides all the means to modify the layout of the document. –  Werner Sep 26 '11 at 16:48
