I need to set some copyright text before the thanks note. The answer here has a similar solution, but for a specific package -- and I need to insert the note/colophon before the first thanks.

\documentclass{scrartcl}

\title{A title}
\author{John Doe\thanks{Thank you all, I need some text above this.}}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}
  • So, do please tell us where the note/colophon is supposed to go. E.g., does it come before the \title directive? – Mico Feb 25 '18 at 19:40
  • @Mico, it should be a "footnote", but without any mark, just like here. As to where I can insert it in the document to make it appear like that, it doesn't matter, but it would be nice if I could use it like \thanks (inside title or author) – Joseph Feb 25 '18 at 21:01
  • I had suggested a hackish alternative on top of the answer that has been deleted, which should work under your requirements. Would a "not so clean" solution be welcome? – gusbrs Feb 26 '18 at 21:28
  • @gusbrs, of course it would be very welcome. – Joseph Feb 26 '18 at 21:43

This is not an elegant way do do things (not recommended either), and I'm only giving this as an answer because the OP explicitly manifested to be open to a hackish solution, as long as the requirements were satisfied. Someone might well come up with something better.

\documentclass{scrartcl}

\usepackage{xcolor}

\newcommand\copyrightnote[1]{%
  \begingroup
  \renewcommand\thefootnote{}\footnote{\kern-5pt \textcolor{white}{\rule{5pt}{2ex}}#1}%
  \addtocounter{footnote}{-1}%
  \endgroup
}

\title{A title}
\author{John Doe\copyrightnote{My copyright note.}\thanks{Thank you all, I need some text above this.}}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}
