Hi Alan,

this is a fundamental limitation in LaTeX

See http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=toodeep

The only thing you can do in Org is to increase the number of headline levels to the maximum possible:


is I think the maximum you can get.  You cal also create a
LaTeX class with more headline leves and push H even further.
I believe there are some clases which provide at least subsubparagraph.

If you have a good idea how to represent deeper levels in LaTeX, maybe we
can do something clever in the LaTeX exporter.

Besides this, I see no further way out of this problem.

When I am able to clear out a couple of levels of /begin{itemize}, LaTeX does compile, and produces a file with sections as expected.

Is there a solution, or something I ought to know?

I have tried to set some options, like sec:5, in the outline, but to no effect. In the PDF, instead of sections with numbers, one finds several stars, as though this were an ascii export.

Thank you for any advice.
