I am using the class report right now, and would like to use \subsection as a running counter throughout the entire chapter, without reseting it in a new \section.

Tried to research this myself, but since google is flooded with how to reset counter, I couldn't find what I was searching for.

    \usepackage{chngcntr} and \counterwithout{subsection}{section}... and this perhaps one of the most asked questions here on TeX.SE ;-)

  • This doesn't help at all, actually it counteracts what I want I need the section and the chapter counter before, but I only want to suppress the reset of the subsection counter. This solutions deletes said counter. Apr 19, 2017 at 10:56

    Then use \counterwithout*{subsection}{section} ;-) Reading the manual can help ;-)

  • Well stating this is a duplicate and then stating that reading the manual to actually understand both problems are interlinked did help to. What means I would have to read the manual of a package maybe not helping at all, to understand it would help. Instead of asking a community that wants to help and wants to share knowledge. Said behaviour counteracts the share of knowledge and leads to elitist behaviour. Like stating that reading the manual helps. Apr 19, 2017 at 11:05
  • Where in your initial post was the line that you want to keep the numbering displayed as is? Even if you edit and 'change' the question afterwards, it is still a duplicate of some other question, I am pretty sure. The suggestion to read the manual is also a pretty natural thing to do, in my opinion the manual would be the first thing to check after some suggestion has been done.
