I am using org-mode to write papers and I am often confronted the following problem: starting from

* A
** A1
   Text for level A1
** A2
   Text for level A2

I want to add an additional information after Text for level A2 but at the level of A as follows:

* A
** A1
   Text for level A1
** A2
   Text for level A2
  Text stil in section A but not in section A2

But org mode does not seem to enable this and aligns the text with section A2.

I tried to insert an "artificial" section

* 
  Text stil in section A but not in section A2

but it appears in the LaTeX export and therefore this is not a satisfactory solution. Is there a way to solve this problem, for instance by adjusting the export of the "artificial" section to make it invisible in the exported document ?

    I don't think that this is possible at all. You can't "raise" the level of a text after a subsection. How would that even look like in a document? – lunaryorn Jan 10 '16 at 20:52

From the Org-mode FAQ:

The short answer to the question is no. Org-mode adheres to the cascading logic of outlines, in which a section is closed only by another section that occupies an equal or greater level.

The FAQ suggests a few workarounds that may or may not work for you.

There is also ignore headings to use in your exports, which would ignore a tagged headline but would cause its children to be promoted by one, so I'm not entirely sure if it's worth it.
