# [Tex/LaTex] Suppress ORCID author footnote in els-cas-templates document class

authorels-casfootnotes

I’m using the els-cas-templates LaTeX package (doc). I will be submitting to an Elsevier journal, which allows this official package for submission. I have not touched any of the template files. I am editing/building on Overleaf.

I have not provided any ORCIDs for the authors, however there is still a blank ORCID footnote being displayed. How do I suppress that without modifying the template? I have emailed the package authors, but have yet to receive a reply.

Here is my LaTeX author code:

\author[1]{John Smith}
\cormark[1]
\author[2]{John Doe}


The title page footnotes look like this:

But they should look like this (format)(copied from published article):

Also there is an email img instead of the word "E-mail address". I can ask that as a separate question if requested.
