I am writing my thesis with overleaf. I have used a book document class and I am proceeding in the enumeration of the chapters, sections and subsections. It looks fine from section to subsection where I want numbers both in the main file that in the table of contents.

The problem is that for subsubsection I would like to have a bullet (or any kind of pointing symbol) instead of numbers both in the main file and in the table of contents (in both cases indented, even if I think that in the toc it would be automatically indented). I do not know I to fix the problem. I tried with the * to delete the number, but then I do not know how to add the bullet and anyway in the text I would have still the number. Is there someone who could help me? Thanks a lot for your help. The basic code could be this one

\chapter{} \section{} \section{} \subsection{} \subsubsection{}

The last part, that is the subsubsection I would like to have it without numbers both in the main file and in the toc and replacing numbers with bullet or any pointing symbol.

At the end should look like this

    Welcome to TeX SX! Could you post a small complete code, that we can play with?

How about this?

\setcounter{secnumdepth}{3} % number subsubsections
\setcounter{tocdepth}{3} % put subsubsections in ToC
\renewcommand{\thesubsubsection}{\ensuremath{\clubsuit}} % no number, fancy glyph
  • super cool ;) thanks a lot, It really worked!!
