### Too much white space around quotations

When I use the environment \begin{quotation}...\end{quotation}, this results in too much white space around the quotation. Please see this screenshot:

Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks very much in advance!

Hey,

To remove the whitespace around quotations, use the quoting package with the vskip=0pt option in your preamble like so:

\usepackage[vskip=0pt]{quoting}

This will only print the normal lineskip whitespace around the quotation without adding any extra space like the default quotation environment does!

Cheers,

Thanks very much!

According to this solution, I need to stop using the environment \begin{quotation}...\end{quotation}, and instead I need to start using the newly defined environment \begin{quoting}...\end{quoting}. This is a perfectly legitimate solution, but I was just wondering if there is any way to modify the first environment?

No problem! You can modify any environment with the \renewenvironment command, have a look here for more information: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Macros

It's usually better practice (and easier) to just define a new one though, or in this case to use a pre-defined environment from a package!
