I'm writing an article, and it gives me a line at the top of the page on which there's a page number. I want to remove both the line and the page number.

I tried this to remove the line but it didn't work:


This is my whole file:

  • The svjour3 class is used for submissions to Springer journals; they want the rule. If you aren't submitting a paper, avoid using the class. – egreg Jul 7 '15 at 17:29

It looks like you are using a documentclass provided by a journal as required for a paper submission. If that is the case then pretty clearly you should not make any layout modifications.

Otherwise, use any documentclass that best suits your needs - or, if allowed, make a copy of the .cls document, change its name, and edit in any changes to the layout you may require. But this is somewhat advanced stuff. I would recommend you focus on content and not worry about formatting.

  • Yes I am writing using the journal's documentclass, however they require that all figures be provided on separate files - without the lines and page numbers formatting. – user961627 Jul 7 '15 at 17:45
  • But do these separate figures need to be compiled with the same class ? – mvienney Jul 7 '15 at 18:08
