# How to reduce vertical spacing between section headings and paragraphs? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I have a problem in reducing vertical spacing between text and section/subsection headings. There is a lot of spacing between them. May be it is due to lot of graphics i am using. But anyhow, i could not fix it. Thanks in advance

As a fast workaround you could use \vspace*{-5mm} –  Mario S. E. Jun 21 '13 at 22:24
