# How can I number sections below subsection in LaTeX?

I want to make sections in LaTeX.

For a document with chapter divisions, one has

• 1.1 = section
• 1.1.1 = subsection
• 1.1.1.1 = subsubsection

What do I have to use to make lower-level sections be numbered as 1.1.1.1.1?

Are you writing an scientific work? If yes perhaps you rethink your document structure? If my students need so much numbered headings I ask them to rethink the structure. It is better not to have these deep numbers. – Kurt Aug 30 '13 at 11:24

You have to insert \setcounter{secnumdepth}{5} to your document preamble and then the command \paragraph{title} is the equivalent of what you mean by \subsubsubsection{title}.

But in my opinion is not a good idea to have numbered paragraphs nor numbered subsubsections. It makes the text much less readable.

\documentclass{report}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5} % seting level of numbering (default for "report" is 3). With ''-1'' you have non number also for chapters
