I have used the template presented in this answer to create the following document.

\ifcsname r@#2@cref\endcsname
  \cref@getcounter {#2}{\mylabel}
 \else ?? \fi}
\item One
\item Two
\item One
\item Two

The result is

Inconsistent numbering

Observe that the numbering of the items in the proposition statement is (a), (b), whereas the numbering of the items in the proof is (1), (2).

How can I make the numbering in the statement (1), (2)? (Actually, I'd rather the numbering be 1., 2.)

  • Why using different environments? Use the same in both cases. – egreg Sep 7 '18 at 10:57
  • @egreg: Sometimes I need deeply nested numbering, and I don't know how to accomplish this with the enumitem environment, so I use the enumerate environment, however other times the enumitem environment is indispensable to me, since I need to label the items. In either case, I always use the enumerate environment in the proof. – Evan Aad Sep 7 '18 at 11:01



i.e. \arabic, not \alph.

  • Thanks. Is there a way to make the numbering 1., 2. instead of (1), (2)? – Evan Aad Sep 7 '18 at 11:07

    @EvanAad: use label=\arabic*., ref=\upshape\theproposition~\arabic*. – Bernard Sep 7 '18 at 12:00
