I'm using the theoremref package. Some of my sections are numbered with letters, i.e. A, B, C, ... instead of 1, 2, 3, ...

If there is a theorem in, e.g., section A

\begin{Theorem}\thlabel{theo} \end{Theorem}

then the reference looks like the following:

\thref{theo} -> Theorem A.1

Now I would like to change the font of A from italic to normal font.

A minimal example can be view here (if anything is missing, please write, it's my first question in the forum :-) ): https://v1.overleaf.com/21643066jhqtrhnhqmwv

Use cleveref instead of theoremref: it's much easier and much better customizable.

I commented latin1 because my system uses UTF-8 and you should too. The a4wide package has been deprecated for more than a decade: use geometry instead.

As you see, you use the standard \label command and \cref instead of \thref.

enter image description here

By the way, you should set \arraystretch less than 1 with \setstretch{1.5} or matrices will come up very strange. Use



  • Hey, thanks a lot for your answer (and the additional tipps).

  • cleverref is definitely better. It just leads to another problem in my paper. It works as long as I only use Lemma, as soon as I try using Not, Satz or any of the other types i get the error: 'No counter 'N' defined'. Do you know why ?

  • @314aja I haven't the issue. I added the same statement, but marked as Satz; I assigned a different label \label{zusatz+} and with \cref{zusatz+} I get “Satz 1.2”.

  • I just copied my whole code into a new file, now i don' get the error either. I don't understand it, but it works :-). So thanks again for your help.
