I'm using the report documentclass, and the paragraph formatting looks something like this with two paragraphs:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam ac odio est.
Morbi vel turpis ipsum.
    Pellentesque ac ultricies mauris. Vivamus turpis dui, congue a hendrerit
vitae, accumsan  id nulla. Proin laoreet est id est tempor commodo.

However I would like to have:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam ac odio est.
Morbi vel turpis ipsum.

    Pellentesque ac ultricies mauris. Vivamus turpis dui, congue a hendrerit
vitae, accumsan  id nulla. Proin laoreet est id est tempor commodo.

I have tried the parskip package, which added the spacing between the paragraphs I'm looking for, but it also removed all of the indentations.

Please, don't; only use the indent. You're spoiling without remedy your pages, particularly if some paragraphs are short. –  egreg May 13 '12 at 16:02

1 Answer 1

since \parindent is set only once in the parskip package, this should work:

\newdimen\oldparskip
\setlength{\oldparskip}{\parskip}
\usepackage{parskip}
\setlength{\parskip}{\oldparskip}
