I want my appendix section numbering to look like this

A Section one
B Section two

I've figured out how to get the A and B (see question How to modify the appendix chapter numbering?). But with the solution described there I get the following:

A. Section one
B. Section two

How can I remove the dot after the A and B?

Here is my latex file


   \section{First section}

this is not your first question, so you should know that you should provide at least the documentclass which you are using. – Herbert Aug 15 '11 at 8:10
Added some latex lines ^^ – strauberry Aug 15 '11 at 8:14
and it maybe obvious that packages like rotating, multirow aso have nothing to do with your problem. – Herbert Aug 15 '11 at 8:31

You can switch off the dot using the optional argument numbers=noenddot for the scrbook documentclass.

Minimal working example:


\chapter{Normal Chapter}
   \section{First section}

Great, thank you! I've searched for "latex scrbook options" but found no adequate site where to find such information... how can I find them? – strauberry Aug 15 '11 at 8:33
@strauberry: texdoc scrbook brings up the KOMA-script documentation, also available on CTAN. – You Aug 15 '11 at 9:05
@You Thanks! Looks very interesting – strauberry Aug 15 '11 at 9:10
Is it possible to only remove the enddots für the appendix sections? This solution also removes the enddot for normal chapters. – Robinaut Jan 12 '15 at 15:42
