I would like to change equation number from style (N) to (N.). I can do this by redefining

\def\@eqnnum{{\normalfont \normalcolor (\theequation.)}}                                                                                                                                               

of the report:

\def\@eqnnum{{\normalfont \normalcolor (\theequation.)}}                                                                                                                                               

However this solution fails when I uncomment the line


How to solve?

  • Should references to equations also have a dot?

  • @Bernard, yes, how to add the dot to references?

  • I guess @Joule's solution does it automatically. What' not so automatic is to have a dot in the tag, but not in the reference.

Put in the preamble

\def\theequation{  \ifnum \c@chapter>\z@ \thechapter\fi \@arabic\c@equation.}
