In my thesis, all definitions, theorems and lemmas are numbered like #chapter.#section.#definition/theorem/lemma. For example, the first definition in the second section of the first chapter would be Definition 1.2.1.

Except for Remarks, it is not like that. I get Remark 1, Remark 2 ,... See the following picture:

Now I am asked to style Remark like the other ones. How to do that?

%\usepackage[left=4cm, right=2.5cm, top=2.5cm, bottom=2.5cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[subfigure]{tocloft} % no number for Vita in ToC

Your definition of remark appears to be in some other package, but you want to define it as something like, following your other theorem definitions,


The [section] option after the second argument numbers your remarks per section.

  • @user9272398 Could you please be more descriptive? You’d have to replace {rem} with the theorem environment you were actually using, or switch to \begin{rem}. Since there’s no MWE, I needed to guess what name that was.
