See the following MWE, which uses the Bayesian Analysis journal style file..

\documentclass[bib]{ba}
\inserttype[ba0001]{article}
\begin{document}
\title[Short Version]{Long Version}
\author{\fnms{Faheem} \snm{Mitha}\ead[label=e1]{faheem@faheem.info}}

\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
  foo
\end{abstract}
\end{document}

This generates a two page PDF for me. If I remove the blank line, or add a % on the blank line, this becomes one page. This seems like surprising behavior to me. Can anyone tell me if this is a bug, and if not, how should I work around it?

  • @HarishKumar If you remove the blank line, do you get one page? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 22:40
  • @HarishKumar yes, the question is why it goes from two pages to one page. My MWE may have been a little too minimal. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:17
  • @HarishKumar Sorry, my long and short was transposed. I've fixed it now. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:19
  • You get one page at the beginning with the long title and not much else. Then the second page starts with the short title. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:21
  • @HarishKumar You're right. My bad. Now, when I remove that space, the title disappears altogether. Do you get that too? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:30

Try this:

\documentclass[bib]{ba}
\inserttype[ba0001]{article}   
\begin{document}
\title[Short Version]{Long Version}       %% this line
\author{faheem}
 {\fnms{Faheem} \snm{Mitha}\footnotemark[1]\ead{faheem@faheem.info}}    %% this line

\maketitle

\footnotetext[1]{Affiliation First Author}    %% this added.
\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\arabic{footnote}}   %% this may be needed.
\begin{abstract}
  foo
\end{abstract}



\end{document}

enter image description here

What went wrong?

  1. The title should be

    \title[Short article title]{Long title for title page of article insert}
    

    Note the brackets around short title.

  2. The author should be

     \author{authors}{their details line \snms etc}
    
  3. \ead[label=e1]{faheem@faheem.info}} shouldn't have label but a footnotemark
  • I see. So that extra footnote stuff makes a difference? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:35
  • @FaheemMitha Yes don't use labels – user11232 Apr 13 '14 at 23:40
  • Ok. I guess this is usage error, then. I was using an earlier style, and I guess I didn't change properly to the style. Sorry for the noise, and thanks for setting me straight. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:46
  • @FaheemMitha It certainly looks like usage error :( – user11232 Apr 13 '14 at 23:47
