# Adjust .cls latex class document

I am trying to edit this particular .cls file

the only changes i want to make are those related to the front page, as can be seen from the picture. However the cls file is written in complex language and i cant figure out what to remove and yet be able to run it without errors or bad boxes.

Link to text-document using this class "www.textuploader.com/d1b07" where the picture comes from

If i want to edit "Quantitative Finance, vol. 00. ..." as well. How would i do that?

• Welcome to TeX.SE. For LaTeX beginners it is not advisable to edit .cls files. There are other means. What do you mean by complex language? Where is the example file. The links point to the class only

• It's not clear what you want to change. You want to remove the line at the very top, but do you want to replace that line with the circled stuff? You don't need to change the class file itself to do that. Feb 25 '17 at 21:01

You don't need to change the class file to do this, (and generally you shouldn't change class files) but you do need to understand a bit about the TeX language to make the changes. Here's some code you can add to your document to make the changes instead of changing the class.

\documentclass{rQUF2e}
\usepackage{lipsum} % to provide dummy text
\makeatletter
\renewcommand{\draftnote}{{\itshape \@jname} Vol. \@jvol, No. \@jnum, \ifx\@jmonth\empty\else\@jmonth\ \fi\@jyear,  \thepage--\@endpage}
\renewcommand{\ps@plain}{%
\let\@mkboth\@gobbletwo
\let\@oddfoot\@evenfoot
}
\makeatother

\title{A title}
\author{An author}
\affil{An affiliation}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\lipsum
\end{document}


(The line is an artifact of the screen shot.)

• aha so should fix it inside the .tex not the .cls Feb 26 '17 at 0:51
