# Back to the roots (from subsection to section) [closed]

Is there a functionality in latex, through which i can switch back to a section "of higher order"?

For example:

``````\subsubsection{a}
some text in a

\paragraph{aa}
some text in aa
\paragraph{ab}
and again

this text should be again in a. is this possible?
``````

I'm not sure I understand how your objective might fit into LaTeX's sectioning structure. Document divisions created by commands such as `\section`, `\subsection`, etc. aren't implemented as LaTeX "environments", which do have a definite start and end. – Mico Sep 29 '12 at 13:58
Wouldn't `\paragraph{}` be enough to trigger the lineskip? Else you should consider replacing your paragraphs by suitable environments (depending on the meaning of the paragraph). Sectioning "environments" only end when the next one is started, that's not what you want to achieve it seems. – T. Verron Sep 29 '12 at 14:24
