I am using the ntheorem package for hypotheses and subhyotheses (i.e. H1a, H1b, etc.), with the latter being unimportant for my problem. Just as an info for you to understand why I cannot simply use the amsthm package.

My code gives me H 1 instead of H1 as output, and I want to remove that space between "H" and "1". Find a screenshot attached. Thank you!!

Here is my MWE:

\documentclass{scrreprt}

\usepackage{ntheorem}
\newtheorem{hyp}{H}     %I tried \newtheorem{hyp}{H\ignorespaces} - not working

\begin{document}

\begin{hyp}
The higher the mountain the harder the hike.
\end{hyp}

\end{document}

    You will need to define your own theorem style. The default, you show here, is called plain, look in ntheorem.sty for the code for plain, copy it and adjust accordingly. – daleif May 17 '17 at 16:00
  • Thanks, that worked perfect! If you wanna give that as an answer instead of a comment I can put that question on "solved". – Paul May 17 '17 at 16:24

    I don't collect point, why don't you write one yourself, good exercise (plus I'm on a tablet, so interacting with the site is rather slow) – daleif May 17 '17 at 16:25

Thanks to daleif's helpful comment I was able to solve the question by creating a \newtheoremstyle, based on the default style "plain" found in ntheorem.sty.

Plain style:

\newtheoremstyle{plain}%
  {\item[\hskip\labelsep \theorem@headerfont ##1\ ##2\theorem@separator]}%
  {\item[\hskip\labelsep \theorem@headerfont ##1\ ##2\ (##3)\theorem@separator]}

One can see that the space occurs because of the space in ##1\ ##2, so changing ##1\ ##2 to ##1##2 solved my problem.

This leads to the following corrected MWE:

\documentclass{scrreprt}

\usepackage{ntheorem} 

\makeatletter %
\newtheoremstyle{hypotheses}%
  {\item[\hskip\labelsep \theorem@headerfont ##1##2\theorem@separator]}%
  {\item[\hskip\labelsep \theorem@headerfont ##1##2\ (##3)\theorem@separator]}
\makeatother

\theoremstyle{hypotheses}
\newtheorem{hyp}{H} 

\begin{document}

\begin{hyp}
The higher the mountain the harder the hike.
\end{hyp}

\end{document}

with the output:

Hope this might help some of you in the future as well.

    Btw you should probably name the plain style you show plain, and not hypotheses, more instructive give your explanation after it. – daleif May 17 '17 at 19:03
