I'm currently using a template I found online, it included a .cls file that modified the usual \maketitle. Every time I compile with this class I get an error after the \maketitlesaying There's no line to end, here is the whole .cls I'm using:

    We will need more code. Please give us a compilable but minimal document which lets us play around with your problem. Thanks.

  • Is this the whole file? there is no redefinition of \maketitle and the command \PaperTitle is never defined. Have a look at minimal working example (MWE)

  • is the class SelfArx something other people should know about? i see nothing in your simple mwe, so i guess the problem is in your class file. Sep 11, 2014 at 10:10

Firstly, the class file provided was not complete, this solution found it here SelfArx

It seems that what you meant by redefined maketitle giving errors is to remove the \JournalInfo \Archive and \Abstract, all requiring one arguments, but you did not mark out those corresponding definitions in the \@maketitle definition. Thus, when \maketile is issued, it expects those inputs. Since those were not supplied by user, it complains there is no line to end. To work around is (1) either provide those inputs (2) use \JournalInfo{~} \Archive{~} and \Abstract{~} to cheat or (3) mark out those input as shown below

\renewcommand{\@maketitle}{%
\twocolumn[{%
\thispagestyle{empty}%
\vskip-36pt%
%{\raggedleft\small\sffamily\bfseries\@JournalInfo\\
%\@Archive\par
%}%
\vskip20pt%
{\raggedright\color{color1}\sffamily\bfseries\fontsize{20}{25}\selectfont \@PaperTitle\par}%
\vskip10pt
{\raggedright\color{color1}\sffamily\fontsize{12}{16}\selectfont  \@Authors\par}
\vskip18pt%
\fcolorbox{color1}{white}{%
\parbox{\textwidth-2\fboxsep-2\fboxrule}{\centering%
\colorbox{color2!10}{%
\parbox{\textwidth-3.5\fboxsep-3.5\fboxrule}{%
\ifx\@Keywords\@empty
%\sffamily\small\textbf{\abstractname}\\
%\@Abstract
\else
%\sffamily\small\textbf{\abstractname}\\
%\@Abstract\\[5pt]%
\textbf{\keywordname}\\
\@Keywords%
\fi
}%
}%

results in
