# Remove Marginpar from Classicthesis 4.1

I am searching for a safe method to remove the \marginpar feature in classicthesis. My corrector would rather have the text use the whole page. I am not that firm in LaTeX, so I tried to simply remove all occurrences/command references, but this only messes with the layout of the margin-notes.

I found this answer, which moves the chapter number into the title.

I would appreciate the help

You should try resisting the wish of your corrector. But if you can't, here's a way:

\documentclass[
twoside,openright,titlepage,numbers=noenddot,headinclude,
footinclude=true,cleardoublepage=empty,
BCOR=10mm,paper=a4,fontsize=11pt,
]{scrbook}

\usepackage[linedheaders]{classicthesis}

%%% Change the text block area to add also the margin space
\areaset[current]{\dimexpr\textwidth+\marginparwidth+\marginparsep}{\textheight}
\setlength{\marginparwidth}{0pt}
\setlength{\marginparsep}{0pt}

\usepackage{kantlipsum}

\begin{document}

\mainmatter
\chapter{First chapter title}

\section{A section}

\kant

\end{document}


The kantlipsum package is just to provide mock text.

can you send me a black template with your modifications? I am new to Lyx, but managed to type some chapters using Lyx. My professor wants me to use the full paper. –  user31207 May 24 '13 at 13:09
