Currently, I'm trying to add a dot after numbers of a section or a subsection with KOMA-Script class. I already found some questions about this subject with the option enddot or endperiod but it does not work. After some research I found that the problem comes from the package minitoc. As soon as I load it the dots disappear and even if I comment the \usepackage[francais]{minitoc} dots won't be back.

After commenting the command,I have to delete the "myfile.aux" to bring back dots.

Here is a MWE:

\usepackage[francais]{minitoc} % sommaires
\section{My section}
\subsection{My subsection}

This gives a table of contents with dots after numbers, but in the document the section/subsection title won't have dots.

enter image description here

I would like my numbers of section/subsection title to be the same as the numbers in the table of contents.

How can I obtain this? Should I remove minitoc package?

    minitoc changes \@sect and so breaks quite a number of KOMA-adaptions to section. Feb 4, 2017 at 12:06
  • then how can i overcome this ? Feb 4, 2017 at 12:51
  • You should not use minitoc. You may setup the teble of content yourself with integrated KOMAScript commands. Read the manual chapter 15 for details. In addition, take a look at the different \addtokomafont-commands

  • There is imho no simple solution -- and it also depends on why you are using minitoc. Feb 4, 2017 at 14:19

With KOMA-Script from pre-release 3.23.2580 I get

Seems to be OK


\section{My section}
\subsection{My subsection}

But also in the log file:

Class scrartcl Warning: Usage of package `minitoc' together
(scrartcl)              with a KOMA-Script class is not recommended.
(scrartcl)              Nevertheless, using requested
(scrartcl)              package `minitoc' on input line 4.


Class scrartcl Warning: Redefining minitoc's internal command `\stc@sect'

(scrartcl)              of KOMA-Script on input line 4.
