I'm trying to write a cover letter using the newlfm document class.

It's okay for the letter but every page introduces a hideous top and bottom rule line. Has anyone used this and knows how to remove?

The example code I'm using is here: http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/15534

Adding this to your preamble should work:


It is because the class internally uses the package fancyhdr and this is the stardard way to remove the header and footer lines in this package. The class defines two styles, ltrhead and othhead, this way, we remove the lines from both of them.

Fantastic, thanks, – user1170304 Jan 10 '13 at 11:02
For future viewers, adding \newlfmP{noLines} should also work. – jthetzel Jun 24 '14 at 16:40
