• Welcome! Could you edit your question's title to be a bit more meaningful? It isn't at all clear when it is read in the list of question what those lines and that document refer to! – cfr Aug 23 '16 at 12:12
• @Down-voters: why?? Please do not vote a post down without leaving a comment explaining how it can be improved. Especially when a user has only just joined the site and has posted their first question. While the formatting of this question needed some improvement and while some explanation in the question and a better title would be good, it is far better than many first questions and includes all the basics such as code. – cfr Aug 23 '16 at 12:15
• I've gone ahead and changed the title of your question. Please check that it reflects what you want to ask. You can edit your question to change it if not. I just wanted to dissuade further down voting, if possible. – cfr Aug 23 '16 at 12:18
• I can't compile your code, though. Can you fix it, please? – cfr Aug 23 '16 at 12:26

Note that I had to modify your code in order to even compile it and that I've, therefore, had to guess as to what you might have meant in several places.

noLines removes the lines on the first page. nolines removes it on subsequent pages.
