I am writing my master's thesis on TeXmaker. As for following the APA citation rules, I started using the apa6 document class. But even in the doc-mode, it still puts a short title (in capital letters) on top of every page, but I don't think that is appropriate in a master's thesis.
So my question is: how can I either erase that short title so it doesn't appear at all, or at least change it into normal letters? I tried \renewcommand{\shorttitle}[1]{} which I found in this forum, it seems to work for suppressing the abstract, but it didn't work for me.


I found a nice workaround: just leaving the \shorttitle{} -command empty helped. My MWE:

\usepackage[english, ngerman]{babel}


\affiliation{master's thesis}
\shorttitle{ }
  • it doesn't work. the doc still says "Running head:"
