For some reason when I reference something in my text, it also gives the type of object referenced (like Tabel 1, instead of just 1). I understand, that this is not standard latex behavior, but I do not explicitly load packages, that should alter this. I guess, one of the packages I use silently does this.

Here is my MWE:

\documentclass[12pt, english, parskip, a4paper]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[journal=angew]{chemstyle}   % loads chemscheme, graphicx

            Test \\ 

    Look at Table~\ref{tab:test}.

This will print

Look at Table Table 1.

How can I get rid of this? Thanks!

  • Try unloading chemstyle ... – karlkoeller Nov 30 '13 at 12:47

    chemstyleloads varioref. You can turn it off by adding the option varioref=false: \usepackage[journal=angew,varioref=false]{chemstyle} – DG' Nov 30 '13 at 12:48
  • chemstyle also centers the content of the environment. – Johannes_B Nov 30 '13 at 12:50
  • @DG' This was actually the solution. If you turn this into an answer, I will select it. One question still arises. The documentation of chemstyle only states, that it is loaded, but not what it is used for. Any ideas? – basseur Nov 30 '13 at 13:27

    In text I prefer " ... Table 1 ..." with an uppercase 'T', since that Table is a proper noun. – Ethan Bolker Nov 30 '13 at 14:39

The package chemstyle loads varioref by default. This can be turned off with the option varioref=false. The relevant line in your example would therefore read:
