I wish to obtain a result like:



And we will obtain the following Theorem:

Theorem 2.X

[statement of the theorem]


  1. Section One


  1. Section Two


This gives

Theorem 2.X

[statement of the theorem]


And of course I don't want to input the theorem by hand in the introduction so that I have to update the number everytime I add some new theorem before my Theorem 2.X.

The best way that I can come up with is to use \cref for the number of theorem, say




\textit{[statement of the theorem]}

\section{Section One}

\section{Section Two}

[statement of the theorem]


This seems not bad, but I still have to do manually to keep the statements and the textstyle synchronous. Also, if I'm using tcbtheorem for my theorems, then I need to create a tcolorbox and make it have the same style to my boxes of theorems, and it would be tedious if I want to change the style someday.

I'd like to know if there is a better solution in which everything can be done automatically. Thanks in advance.

The thmtools package defines restatable theorems through the thm-restate package. Here is is the example in the manual, which shows how it is used:

For every prime $p$, there is a prime $p’>p$.
In particular, the list of primes,
is infinite.

and to the right, I just use
