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


This doesn't work for me.



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.


I just realize that your question provides the answer to a question
I had for a long time:  Why did Bastien implement lower
levels in the LaTeX export as {description} lists instead of
{itemize} lists.  Now I know the answer:  Because the number of levels
in a description list is not limited.

I recently changed Bastien's code to use itemize instead, for
consistence with HTML export.  Fortunately I left the old code
in, with a customization option.  Please try:

(setq org-export-latex-low-level 'description)

So far, this doesn't solve my problem. Should I then use description lists for all outline entries?

No.  This should just take your

******** headline

and export it as a description list item. Works just fine in my tests here.

I don't understand why I do not see "section" or "subsection", and the sections often come out with bare stars. Is this also because the number of levels has been exceeded?

No, this must be a different bug, which I cannot reproduce. Example file???

Thank you again. This is the first limitation of LaTeX I have not seen an immediate way around.
