# Changing the vertical spacing before and after the quoting environment when using parskip

I'm working with the quoting environment but I can't figure out how to adjust the vertical space before and after it. I would like the environment to be indented on either side like it is but not have a full paragraph return before or after it.

The quoting documentation says that the space at the top of a quote is controlled by vskip. I have tried adjusting the vskip option to vskip=-8pt but it didn't do anything. I also tried adding a \noindent before the quoting environment--also didn't do anything.

Here is a minimal working example.

\documentclass[11pt, oneside]{article}% use "amsart" instead of "article" for AMSLaTeX format
% TeX will automatically convert eps --> pdf in pdflatex
\usepackage{amssymb}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}           %use line breaks instead of indentation

\usepackage{quoting}    %For inset quotes more than three lines

\title{Brief Article}
\author{The Author}
%\date{}                            % Activate to display a given date or no date

\begin{document}
\maketitle
%\section{}
%\subsection{}
\blindtext

\begin{quoting}
This is a quote which should be indented but should not have a full
paragraph line before it or after it. In other words it should be
indented on either side but shouldn't have a full paragraph skip before.
\end{quoting}

\Blindtext

\end{document}

Using the vskip=-\parskip option seems to do the trick.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}

\usepackage[vskip=-\parskip]{quoting}

\begin{document}

\blindtext

\begin{quoting}
This is a quote which should be indented but should not have a full
paragraph line before it or after it. In other words it should be
indented on either side but shouldn't have a full paragraph skip before.
\end{quoting}

\blindtext

\blindtext

\end{document}

Looks like there is some conflict between quoting and parskip. If you comment out the \usepackage[parfill]{parskip} line, then the [vskip=0pt] option after \begin{quoting} works as expected.

Also, this looks like a duplicate of How to modify spacing around quotation environment?

Actually, the quoting/parskip combo is a special case. – lockstep Apr 2 '13 at 9:29
@lockstep ah, didn't know about that, thanks for the info. – domenico Apr 2 '13 at 9:37
