It seems that there is a different length between the different levels. It seems it is larger between the subsection and subsubsection as opposed to between the section and subsection. I have read that using the tocloft package that indent and numwidth control these lengths. How do I change them so they are all 0.5 in? and also include down to the paragraph level? (just a note: I don't want to change the indenting size in the body just the ToC)

The following table (taken from the tocloft documentation) lists the standard values for the indent and numwidth:

You can use \cftsetindents to control the indent and numwidth values for the entries; the syntax is


To include the paragraphs, you will have to change the counters tocdepth (controlling the level up to which entries will appear in the ToC) and secnumdepth (controlling the level up to which sectional units will be numbered). A little example:





\section{Test Section}
\subsection{Test Subsection}
\subsubsection{Test Subsubsection}
\paragraph{Test Paragraph}
