I am using the following template to write my document, however, I have noticed that I do not have numbering in the \subsubsection command. Furthermore, I would like to have something like \subsubsubsection to the document. How can I do these two things?

I tried to use the following commands:


But it did not properly work.

The TU-Delft dissertation class does not use secnumdepth to control the numbering of sections. I'm not sure how strict TU Delft is on formatting requirements for dissertations (back in my day, I remember stories of department secretaries measuring margins, spacing, etc. with a ruler and rejecting non-conforming dissertations).

The standard section division below \subsubsection is \paragraph. The TU-Delft dissertation class does not define formatting for that section level, however, so the formatting may not be conformant with university requirements.

  • It is a bit weird since now I can see the numbering in the \paragraph but not in the \subsubsection. I do not think that I will have these types of issues. However, it will be weird if I have the numbering for the paragraphs and not the \subsubsection.

  • The way the \subsubsection command is defined, it doesn't produce numbering regardless of the setting of secnumdepth The dissertation class uses the definition of \paragraph from the book class which does use secnumdepth which is why you see the numbering there.

  • Bit weird, ok I think I will skip that, it does not make that much of sense.
