# A “non-sciency” LaTeX book

One of my “customers” wanted a book that didn’t look so “sciency” (i.e., less like LaTeX). So here are a few tweaks to match their expectations.

Chapters should have letters as references with the prefix “Teil”:

```\renewcommand{\thechapter}{Teil \Alph{chapter}}
```

Sections have the letter, a hyphen and the number:

```\renewcommand*{\thesection}{\Alph{chapter}-\arabic{section}}
```

Figures have no numbers, only the caption text below (using the package `caption`):

```\usepackage{caption}
\captionsetup[figure]{labelformat=empty,textfont=footnotesize}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{}
```

The first line of a paragraph is not indented. To compensate, the space between paragraphs is bigger:

```\setlength\parindent{0pt}
```

The header line of a page contains no section, but only the name of the chapter (using the package `scrlayer-scrpage`):

```\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\clearpairofpagestyles % empty default header/footer markings
\automark[chapter]{chapter} % only chapter as mark
