The problem is happening inside my paragraphs in ShareLatex. /paragraph{} Document class 12pt (report) Was fine until I added footnotes. Comes up with: \@sect has an extra } but I don’t see how \@xfootnote doesn’t match its definition. It isn’t in a section header. Missing \endcsname inserted

I don’t see how any of these errors are happening because it was fine before I added footnotes with / symbols and full stops in them.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you by providing a minimal compilable code snippet to reproduce the error. – TeXnician Aug 3 '18 at 8:53
  • Delete the temporary files/recompile from scratch and try again. Don't use \footnotes in a \section argument if that's what you are doing. Please show us a short yet compilable example document that reproduces the error. – moewe Aug 3 '18 at 9:07

    \paragraph is not for typesetting paragraphs. Just leave a blank line between text paragraphs and don't use \paragraph. – egreg Aug 3 '18 at 11:06

I suspect that you don't really want to use \paragraph. \paragraph is a sectioning command like \section and \subsection. It is not meant to create a text paragraph.

But if you want to use it, then its obligatory argument (which could move to the toc) shouldn't contain fragile commands like footnote. Then use something like

\paragraph[text for the toc]{Text with \footnote{bblblb}}
