I'm using classicthesis to write my document. I don't use the option drafting but I can see on the bottom of the page the date (there is a part of the date that is not readable, but when I copy and paste this part I obtain [ December 1, 2011 at 20:50 ]). This is my code:

\documentclass[a4paper]{scrreprt}   % classe report di KOMA-Script

\usepackage[english]{babel}     % Per scrivere in inglese
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}        % Imposta la codifica dei font
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}     % Lettere accentate da tastiera
\usepackage{classicthesis-preamble} % Preambolo classicthesis
\usepackage{classicthesis}      % Classicthesis




I would like to avoid this little issue.

I use TeXworks in Windows7 x64.

The file classicthesis-preamble.sty includes these lines:


so this package internally passes the drafting option to classicthesis. If you want to avoid this, you can 1) Not load the classicthesis-preamble package or 2) Change the order in which the packages are loaded:


I don't know, however, what side effects could this last option produce.

3) Make a copy of classicthesis-preamble.sty and save it as myclassicthesis-preamble.sty somewhere TeX can find it (your current working directory, for example). Open this file and search for the lines I mentioned above and comment-out (or delete) the drafting option. Save this file, and in your document, instead of



  • To resolve the side effect (this warning: Package "classicthesis" should be loaded AFTER "classicthesis-preamble") I have now adopted the 3rd solution.
