how do I get a new line after \paragraph

Postby ougka » Tue May 17, 2011 9:56 pm

Hello all,

Right now, when i use \paragraph I get the normal text starting right next to the "title" of the paragraph. How do I get a new line after the \paragraph and the text after that being indented just as a \section has normally?

Thanks a lot!

Hi ougka,

it depends on your document class. Which one are you using? \paragraph has to be redefined.

Alternatively, you could use the titlesec package which provides flexible commands for customizing headings. The standard class examples in the appendix of the titlesec documentation are a good start.

Hello Stephan,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I am using the \documentclass[a4paper,oneside,12pt]{book} class!

Any more specific ideas of how to redefine \paragraph? I would like to avoid using another package for doing this if possible...

Thanks again
