## subsubsections won't number themselves

### LaTeX Forum: General

Add tags LaTeX specific issues not fitting into one of the other forums of this category.
Even when explicitly defining...
Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor

...my subsubsections will still not number themselves.

For example, with:
Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
`\subsubsection{a subsubsection}This is a subsubsection.`

All I get is:
a subsubsection

This is a subsubsection.

When what I want is:
1. a subsubsection

This is a subsubsection.

Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Thanks,

Hi cvp,

Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
`\setcounter{secnumdepth}{3}`

Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
`\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}`

As you can guess from my response, the standard behaviour is to number and to include in the ToC only sectional units with depth less than or equal to two (i.e., up to subsections). Incrementing the counters will number (include in the ToC) sectional units of higher depth.
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...

That did it. Knew I forgot something (tocdepth was already 3).
Thanks!

That is worked for me. This is the best forum in subject of latex.
Best wish.
