    Could you please add a minimal working example (MWE) that allows others to reproduce the issue you have? Using \documentclass{report} \setcounter{tocdepth}{3} \setcounter{secnumdepth}{3} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{Chapter} \section{Section} \subsection{Subsection} \subsection{Subsection} \end{document} I get the correct result.

  • Please tell us which document class you employ. And please tell us if your document contains instructions (possibly in the preamble) that modify the properties of \thesubsection.

If I understand well your problem, it is very simple with titlesec (as you don't define myblue and my orange in your post, I had to define them myself):



\section{First section}
\subsection{Declarative Development:}
\subsection{Programmatic Development:}
