# Removing/Turning off the ORCID ID feature in els-cas template

Is there a way to remove/turn off the ORCID ID feature from the footnote of the title page? I am using Elsevier's CAS LaTeX Single Column Template.

If you mean the ORCID(s): footnote like at the bottom of this page (which is a rather odd default, since no ORCID was actually given):

then the only way to remove it seems to be by un-defining the command \printorcid (with \let\printorcid\relax, for example):

\documentclass{cas-sc}
\usepackage{natbib}
\let\printorcid\relax % Remove ORCID footnote
\author{Me}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


then the output looks like:

• Thanks. This solves the issues :-) – Qureshi Mar 15 at 2:51
