Paragraph separation

Postby hardyb » Wed Feb 12, 2014 2:14 pm

I am using a journal paper template ieeetran5.

I see that most paragraphs have the same vertical spacing but a few larger spacing and this has come up in a review.

The review is slightly ambiguous, but I think some of the paragraphs may be those that follow a section or subsection title. I suspect this may have something to do with the size and positioning of my figures.

Sorry if this is a little vague. Let me know if I need to delve a little deeper.

What is the best strategy for resolving this kind of issue?

I guess you use a twosided layout, and LaTeX stretches white space vertically to get the same page height everywhere. This can be disabled, but I assume you must match the standard journal layout.

In that case you could check your page breaks and try to optimize. Yes, big figures or tables can make page breaking harder. You could try to give more placement options, such as [!htbp] in the maximum, or the LyX equivalent.

Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.

So far I have pretty much used Lyx on a needs to know basis and this is the first lower level change I have had to make. I haven't really used raw Tex.

From Lyx are you saying I need to view all source and edit the tex? Or is there some feature of Lyx that allows me to do this through a dialog?

I'm sure there's a clickable option in LyX. I don't have it installed in the moment, but try clicking with the right mouse button to a figure, choose properties in the popup context menu, there should be a dialog window where you can choose top, bottom, here, page, and even relaxed setting. Perhaps mark all options and see what changes.
