How can I remove the numbers of my paragraphs, but still keep the links within my LateX file using hyperref? It's a bit like this question, but then with paragraphs: No section numbers, but still have PDF bookmarks with hyperref

1 Answer 1


Just set counter secnumdepth accordingly.

If the paragraph titles do not appear in the table of contents (counter tocdepth), then the depth can set to a different value for the bookmarks.

Full example:

  depth=5, % otherwise the setting of counter `tocdepth' would be used



  • Thanks for the quick reply. But when I add a label to a paragraph and refer to it with \ref then it refers to the subsection. That's still not what I want. I want to refer it to the paragraph. Do you know how? Oct 19, 2014 at 9:43
  • @JoeyTribiani - How do you plan to cross-reference an entity that you've chosen not to number? Not by its number, right?

    @JoeyTribiani You can use \nameref or \pageref. Oct 19, 2014 at 10:26
