I want my appendix section numbering to look like this

Appendix
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:

Appendix
A. Section one
B. Section two

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

Here is my latex file

\documentclass[bibliography=totoc,version=first,listof=totoc,BCOR5mm,DIV12,index=totoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{bibgerm}
\usepackage[english,german]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} 
\usepackage{todonotes}
\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{listings} 
\usepackage{a4wide}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{array,amssymb}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage[style=altlist,order=word,hyperfirst=true]{glossaries}
\loadglsentries{glossar}
\makeglossaries
\usepackage[babel,german=quotes]{csquotes}
\usepackage[bibstyle=alphabetic,citestyle=diplomarbeit,language=ngerman]{biblatex}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
   \tableofcontents
\mainmatter
\backmatter
   \appendix
   \renewcommand\thesection{\Alph{section}}
   \chapter{Appendix}
   \section{First section}
\end{document}

  • this is not your first question, so you should know that you should provide at least the documentclass which you are using.

    and it maybe obvious that packages like rotating, multirow aso have nothing to do with your problem.

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

Minimal working example:

\documentclass[numbers=noenddot]{scrbook}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
   \tableofcontents
\mainmatter
\chapter{Normal Chapter}
\backmatter
   \appendix
   \renewcommand\thesection{\Alph{section}}
   \chapter{Appendix}
   \section{First section}
\end{document}

  • 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: texdoc scrbook brings up the KOMA-script documentation, also available on CTAN.

    Is it possible to only remove the enddots für the appendix sections? This solution also removes the enddot for normal chapters.

  • Use \renewcommand{\autodot}{} to remove enddots thereafter
