Sometimes, however, I like to break up my text in sections without headers - creating a new paragraph with an empty line before it, and no indentation, like this:
I feel that this splits up the text in a nice way, when a section (or subsection) gets long. It could, for example, look like this:
My question is now the following: Would it be possible to get this behavior as a command, instead of manually putting the newlines and removing the indentation? This could be just like making a
\section-like command, but without actually having a header - only simply making some spacing and starting without an indent after the command has been issued.
I get an error if there are empty lines in the LaTeX code before the newlines: Sometimes I put in code for floats etc. between the paragraphs, and would like to be able to have empty lines in the code surrounding these (making it easier to read and manage). With my current approach, I either have to manually comment out each empty line of code, or not have empty lines, making the code hard to read. With the command (let's call it
\skippingparagraph), I would be able to have code looking like
Of course this command would have to do the correct thing when it ends up making the new paragraph at the top of a page or underneath a float (then the spacing shouldn't suddenly make the paragraph start further down on the page).
I realize this question is a little silly, since the command wouldn't make much of a difference, but I like to keep my code clean, and this has bothered me for years. My google-fu hasn't been strong enough to find anything related before this.
Thank you in advance for anyone giving it a try!
I tend to use the
bookdocument classes - although I don't think this will change much for this problem.
