# how to put 4 authors in a single row in ACM conf format?

I have four authors in the paper and they are by-default arranged as follows:

Author1            Author2
Author3            Author4


Is there a way to force the format to put authors in a single row as follows?

Author1            Author2         Author3            Author4


Code is as follows:

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}

\renewcommand\footnotetextcopyrightpermission[1]{}

\setlength{\textfloatsep}{5pt}
\setlength{\abovedisplayskip}{1.5pt}
\setlength{\belowdisplayskip}{1.5pt}
\usepackage[font=small,skip=0pt]{caption}

I want to know if there is way to put all four authors in a single row. Currently these are coming in 2 rows with 2 authors in one row as shown above.

• What is the documentclass, could you post a MWE? – Thorbjørn E. K. Christensen Mar 14 '18 at 19:33
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}.

The class acmart allows to set the number of authors per row by inserting e.g.

\settopmatter{authorsperrow=4}


after \documentclass{acmart}.

In your example this results in
