I would like to remove the dot that appears just after chapter's title. enter image description here

How could I do that? This is my mwe using TeXShop Version 3.75 :

    \documentclass[fontsize=12pt,%
                   twoside=semi,%
                   headings=small,%
                   chapterprefix=true,%
                   listof=flat]%
    {scrbook}
    \usepackage{setspace}
    \usepackage{pdfpages} 

    %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%numéros page%%%%%%%%%%%%
    \usepackage[automark]{scrlayer-scrpage}% See scrguien.pdf, chapter 5
    \ihead{\headmark}% running head at the inner edge of the page head
    \ohead*{\pagemark}% page number at the outer edge of the page head (plain pages too)
    \ofoot*{}% no page number at the outer edge of the page footer (plain pages too)
    %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
    \addtokomafont{pageheadfoot}{\scshape\small}%changed to small caps in headers
    \addtokomafont{disposition}{\normalfont}
    \addtokomafont{part}{\scshape\LARGE}
    \addtokomafont{chapter}{\scshape\Huge}
    \addtokomafont{section}{\scshape\large}
    \addtokomafont{subsection}{\itshape}
    \addtokomafont{subsubsection}{\itshape}
    \addtokomafont{paragraph}{\scshape\small}
    \addtokomafont{subparagraph}{\scshape\small}
    %\let\bfseries\mdseries

    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
    \usepackage [french]{babel}
    \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
    \usepackage{mathptmx}
    \usepackage{chngcntr}
    \counterwithout{footnote}{chapter}
    \usepackage{hyperref}

\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\thepart}{\Roman{part}}}

    When I compile your code, I don't get any dots after the chapter-level headers. Which TeX distribution do you employ?

  • I get your dot after the chapter number only using the option "numbers=enddot".

  • @esd: Why? I already wrote my thesis using that package. I just want to remove the dot after the title number.

    in the title and text of your question, you say you want to remove the dot after the chapter title. In a comment, you say you want to remove the dor after the number. Which is it? If appropriate, please rephrase the question. Apr 13 '19 at 20:51

To remove the dot only after chapter numbers in the chapter title redefine \chapterformat¹:

\renewcommand*{\chapterformat}{%
  \mbox{\chapappifchapterprefix{\nobreakspace}\thechapter
  \IfUsePrefixLine{}{\enskip}}%
}

Example:

\documentclass[fontsize=12pt,%
               twoside=semi,%
               headings=small,%
               chapterprefix=true,%
               listof=flat]%
{scrbook}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{pdfpages} 

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%numéros page%%%%%%%%%%%%
\usepackage[automark]{scrlayer-scrpage}% See scrguien.pdf, chapter 5
\ihead{\headmark}% running head at the inner edge of the page head
\ohead*{\pagemark}% page number at the outer edge of the page head (plain pages too)
\ofoot*{}% no page number at the outer edge of the page footer (plain pages too)
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\addtokomafont{pageheadfoot}{\scshape\small}%changed to small caps in headers
\addtokomafont{disposition}{\normalfont}
\addtokomafont{part}{\scshape\LARGE}
\addtokomafont{chapter}{\scshape\Huge}
\addtokomafont{section}{\scshape\large}
\addtokomafont{subsection}{\itshape}
\addtokomafont{subsubsection}{\itshape}
\addtokomafont{paragraph}{\scshape\small}
\addtokomafont{subparagraph}{\scshape\small}
%\let\bfseries\mdseries

%\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}% can be removed with an uptodate TeX distribution
\usepackage [french]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{mathptmx}
%\usepackage{chngcntr}% can be removed with an uptodate TeX distribution
\counterwithout{footnote}{chapter}
\usepackage{hyperref}

%\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\thepart}{\Roman{part}}}
\counterwithin*{chapter}{part}

\renewcommand*{\chapterformat}{%
  \mbox{\chapappifchapterprefix{\nobreakspace}\thechapter%\autodot
  \IfUsePrefixLine{}{\enskip}}%
}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter
\tableofcontents


\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum

\mainmatter

\part{Objet et méthode}

\chapter{Définitions}
\lipsum
\end{document}

¹ To remove the final dot after all numbers (chapter, section, ..., figure, table) use class option numbers=noenddot.
