Subsubsubsections in 6.0.12

jm's picture

I received a TeX file from a co-author that used subsubsubsections. These seem to be recognized correctly in SWP 6.0.12, appear in the headings panel on the left-hand side of the program window, and appear correctly in PDF Preview. But when I want to add further subsubsubsections, I find that there is no entry for these in the drop-down list of environments.

As every other aspect of using a subsubsubsection seems to work correctly, I imagine the problem is simply that this environment has been omitted from the drop-down menu.

Is that correct? If so, please add subsubsubsection to the drop-down menu. If not, the problem needs sorting out.

The sectioning commands for

The sectioning commands for LaTeX are, according to The LaTeX Companion, Ed. 2, are:

\part
\chapter
\section
\subsection
\subsubsection
\paragraph
\subparagraph

so I think what you want is 'paragraph'.

You might also be interested in the autosubstitute '.sub.' (the two periods are part of the pattern) which starts a new section with level one higher than the current section.
