If I want to give a title to a paragraph I can just use \paragraph{Respective Title} *Text*

However, I cannot put a line break between the title and the text, since it would give a compilation error.

I'm looking for something like what can be see on this Wikipedia page.

  • Would something \subsubsection*{Respective Title} work? The * prevents it from being numbered. – AJF Aug 26 '19 at 8:59
  • Please mention the class name (i.e., \documentclass{book}) what you used? – MadyYuvi Aug 26 '19 at 10:19

titlesec package can do:



\titlespacing*{\paragraph}{0pt}{3.25ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{1.5ex plus .2ex}





enter image description here

  • It seems the O.P. doesn't want paragraphs to be numbered… – Bernard Aug 26 '19 at 9:54
  • @Bernard The paragraph is not numbered. See image, no number – wang ki wun Aug 26 '19 at 9:57
  • And no message from the use of \theparagraph? – Bernard Aug 26 '19 at 9:58
  • @Bernard What messege? – wang ki wun Aug 26 '19 at 9:59

    There is a number, but you need \setcounter{secnumdepth}{4} to see it. – John Kormylo Aug 26 '19 at 12:40
