# TeX adds a “.” at the end of every caption-number in table/figure environment

Everytime I use a caption in a figure or table-environment, TeX adds a single point at the end of the index - like this:

But it is referenced like this:

I'd love to have exactly the same format in my caption as in my reference (simply 5.4, not 5.4.) - what is going wrong there? It does the same for chapters/sections - I'd like to keep these if possible.

I am using documentclass{scrbook} and I'd need to keep that.

• Please make a minimal working example (MWE). What you show us is not the default behaviour, for example \documentclass{scrbook} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \caption{content...} \end{figure} \end{document} does not print this additional . – user36296 Jan 22 at 17:57

\documentclass[numbers=noenddot]{scrbook}

or you have somewhere else numbers=enddot
