My claims starts with something like: "Claim 0.1" How do I change the numbering? Maybe to something like "Claim 1".

  • you are not giving any information but presumably you are doing something like use \section without using \chapter so the solution would be to use a class without chapters, or use \chapter as your top level sectioning command. Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 15:55

    Presumably you've added the Theorems Numbered by Section module (if you're using the standard article class) or Theorems numbered by Chapter (if you're using a book or report class). Hence, deleting that module will likely help. (You must have added some modules anyway, as Claim is not available by default.) Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 16:07

The Claim environment forms part of a "Theorems" module. It can be numbered in a variety of ways. Most likely you have it set to be "Numbered by Chapter" (or perhaps "Numbered by Section"):

Delete that selection, which will remove the subordinate numbering.
