I am trying to get automatically numbered sections, subsections, and subsubsections while using the APA6 format. Is it possible to number sections even though section numbers were deactivated by APA6? I would prefer to keep apa6 because apart from section numbers I need to comply with APA. I use overleaf but it does not work with TeXMaker (Windows 10 x64) either.

As you can see below, I tried a numbered list to solve the problem (see comment for the error message). Is there any way to manipulate the APA6 package to get section numbers back?

\documentclass[a4paper,man,natbib,12pt]{apa6}

\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[colorinlistoftodos]{todonotes}

\title{Paper}
\shorttitle{Paper}
\author{James Bond}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\begin{enumerate}

\section{\item{1. <- I don't want to do it manually}} % ! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.

\section{2. <- I don't want to do it manually} 

\end{enumerate}

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You're missing the secnumdepth counter. Of course using enumerate is a bad idea here ;-) – user31729 Mar 13 '16 at 16:35

Section numbers are switched on and off with the counter variable secnumdepth, set here to 3, meaning section, subsection and subsubsections should be numbered.

Apparently secnumdepth is set to 0 right from the start!
