How to Activate \subsubsubsection in LaTeX

The equivalent to \subsubsubsection is \paragraph. To have that numbered simply use:
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}
then:
\section{} % level 1
\subsection{} % level 2
\subsubsection{} % level 3
\paragraph{} % level 4 - equivalent to subsubsubsection
\subparagraph{} % level 5
Voila!

  5. Very cool. I have used LaTeX for 10 years and today was the first time I actually had a need for 4 levels.

    Great!

  6. Hello,

    In Lyx 2.0, you can list the subsubsubsection in the TOC by going to Settings --> Numbering and TOC --> change Paragraph as appeared in TOC and Numbered to YES. Then every time you start a new paragraph, it will be numbered and listed in TOC

    Best,

    Thanh.

    The test starts directly behind the heading. I tried \newline, etc. but it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    1. Only redefine paragraph:

      \titleformat{\paragraph} [runin] {\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries} {\theparagraph} {1em} {}

      change [runin] with [hang]

      \titleformat{\paragraph} [hang] {\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries} {\theparagraph} {1em} {}
