[Tex/LaTex] \subsubsubsection command?


I could do \subsection{} and \subsubsection{} but not \subsubsubsection{}. This command does not seem to be available in LaTeX. Is there an alternative command?

\subsubsubsection doesn't exist but, instead, you can use \paragraph and \subparagraph, which will generate something like and .

To include this in your table of contents, you have to declare \setcounter{tocdepth}{4} and \setcounter{secnumdepth}{4}. For subparagraph, use {5}.

There are 7 levels of sections (depending on the document)

  • -1 \part{part}
  • 0 \chapter{chapter}
  • 1 \section{section}
  • 2 \subsection{subsection}
  • 3 \subsubsection{subsubsection}
  • 4 \paragraph{paragraph}
  • 5 \subparagraph{subparagraph}

\part and \chapter are only available in report and book.
