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:



%%% Change the text block area to add also the margin space



\chapter{First chapter title}

\section{A section}



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
