— title: Zero paragraph indent category: formatting permalink: /FAQ-parskip —

The conventional way of typesetting running text has no separation between paragraphs, and the first line of each paragraph in a block of text indented.

In contrast, one common convention for typewritten text was to have no indentation of paragraphs; such a style is often required for “brutalist” publications such as technical manuals, and in styles that hanker after typewritten manuscripts, such as officially-specified dissertation formats.

Anyone can see, after no more than a moment's thought, that if the paragraph indent is zero, the paragraphs must be separated by blank space: otherwise it is sometimes going to be impossible to see the breaks between paragraphs.

The simple-minded approach to zero paragraph indentation is thus: ```latex \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} \setlength{\parskip}{\baselineskip} ``` and in the very simplest text, it's a fine solution.

However, the non-zero `\parskip` interferes with lists and the like, and the result looks pretty awful. The [`parskip`](https://ctan.org/pkg/parskip) package patches things up to look reasonable; it's not perfect, but it deals with most problems.

The Netherlands Users' Group's set of classes includes an [`article`](https://ctan.org/pkg/article) equivalent ([`artikel3`](https://ctan.org/pkg/ntgclass)) and a [`report`](https://ctan.org/pkg/report) equivalent ([`rapport3`](https://ctan.org/pkg/ntgclass)) whose design incorporates zero paragraph indent and non-zero paragraph skip.
