# \subsubsubsection instead of \paragraph in LaTeX export with header levels and section numbering > 3

How should I get a proper numbered header `\subsubsubsection{The Header}` instead of a numbered paragraph `\paragraph{The Header}` when exporting to LaTeX with header levels of more than 3?

Having this in my preamble:

``````% Set default Counter Depth
\\setcounter{tocdepth}{5}
\\setcounter{secnumdepth}{4}
``````

And this in my Org file:

``````#+OPTIONS: H:5 num:t
``````

Produces numbered paragraphs instead of proper headings at the fourth level and above.

The answer given over here did not solve the problem.

# Sample Data:

``````#+OPTIONS: H:5

* Section
some text
** Subsection
some text
*** Subsubsection
some text
**** Subsubsubsection
some text
``````

• Standard LaTeX stops at subsubsection. Are you using a package that defines more sectioning? – Dan Mar 24 at 12:43
• I am using `titlesec` to create more sectioning. (Max. 5 levels) – Sati Mar 24 at 13:22

After some research, here is my solution to the problem.

Below is part of the `org-latex-classes` code:

``````\\usepackage{titlesec}
\\usepackage{titling}
\\usepackage{fontspec} % packages for title and section-heading font setting.

% Set Header and Numbering Depth
\\setcounter{tocdepth}{5}
\\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}

% Set formats for each heading level. 'sffamily' will point to the sans-serif font. In this case, 「楷體」.
\\titleformat*{\\section}{\\fontsize{20}{22}\\bfseries\\sffamily}
\\titleformat*{\\subsection}{\\fontsize{18}{20}\\bfseries\\sffamily}
\\titleformat*{\\subsubsection}{\\fontsize{16}{18}\\bfseries\\sffamily}

% The `titlesec` package is used over here to make use of `\\paragraph` and `\\subparagraph` as headings. Up to five levels of headings can be implemented this way.
\\titleformat{\\paragraph}
{\\fontsize{14}{16}\\bfseries\\sffamily}{\\theparagraph}{1em}{}
% New line after heading. (`\\paragraph` and `\\subparagraph` would not automatically generate a new line after the heading text. )
\\titlespacing*{\\paragraph}{\\parindent}{3.25ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{.75ex plus .1ex}

\\titleformat{\\subparagraph}
{\\fontsize{12}{14}\\bfseries\\sffamily}{\\thesubparagraph}{1em}{}
\\titlespacing*{\\subparagraph}{\\parindent}{3.25ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}{.75ex plus .1ex}
``````

This lies right at the end of `org-latex-classes` to implement all 5 levels of subheadings:

``````         ("\\section{%s}" . "\\section*{%s}")
("\\subsection{%s}" . "\\subsection*{%s}")
("\\subsubsection{%s}" . "\\subsubsection*{%s}")
("\\paragraph{%s}" . "\\paragraph*{%s}")
("\\subparagraph{%s}" . "\\subparagraph*{%s}")
``````
