You're missing a blank line before \doublespacing \textbf{Lab Partner:} Marcus The paragraph has not yet ended, so \doublespacing takes over. However, I'd do it differently from switching between double and single spacing: set (locally) a non zero \parskip: \documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article} ...

You could put a strut in the first column. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{p{4cm}p{4cm}} Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur\rule[-6pt]{0pt}{6pt} & adipisicing elit \\ sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore & et dolore magna aliqua.\\ \end{tabular} \end{document}

Though you caould use the parskip package, the safest thing to do here would be to switch to scrartcl and use one of its parskip options (there's half, full and some + and * variants): \documentclass[twoside,parskip=half]{scrartcl} \bibliographystyle{nature} \usepackage{lipsum} % Package to generate dummy text throughout this template ...

Adding \leavevmode also has the desired effect and looks reasonably clean. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{description} \item[Animals:]\leavevmode \begin{itemize} \item Dog \item Cat \item Fish \end{itemize} \item[Colors:]\leavevmode \begin{itemize} \item Red \item Green \item Blue \end{itemize} \end{description} ...

The insertion of an empty item seems to give a better vertical spacing. One can define a myitemize environment that includes this empty item; that will prevent typing it for each description item: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem} \newenvironment{myitemize}% {\begin{itemize}\item[]} {\end{itemize}} \begin{document} \begin{description}[style ...

It looks like you're using the threeparttable environment in a somewhat unusual way. To quote from the user guide of the threeparttable package: This package facilitates tables with titles (captions) and notes. The title and notes are given a width equal to the body of the table (a tabular environment). By itself, a threeparttable does not float, but ...

The example is hardly minimal but I've gone with it anyway. parskip is the recommended way to use vertical spacing for paragraph separation: \documentclass[twoside]{article} \bibliographystyle{nature} \usepackage{parskip} \usepackage{lipsum} % Package to generate dummy text throughout this template %\usepackage[sc]{mathpazo} % Use the Palatino font ...

As the comments on your question said, you want one of \smallskip, \medskip, bigskip, or \vspace{<amount>}. As an example (note that \vspace accepts absolute length in pt, mm, cm, or in, and relative length with ex—the height of an 'x' in the current font—and with the more common em, the width of an uppercase 'M'). ...

So, similar to the last answer, you will need to pull in the lines appropriate to paragraph and subparagraph. These use some different things to make the headings, including different ways of spacing and indenting the sections. I've annotated a few things in the MWE below. See also this great answer for more about how the \@startsection command works so ...

The \\ mechanism can be used, but one has to account for the height of the \parbox, either manually or automatically. The other option, if all rows are to be adjusted, is to use the \extrarowheight parameter of the array package, or else \arraystretch as was mentioned in the comments. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{array} \begin{document} ORIGINAL ...

If you do not have vertical lines, then this can be solved by \noalign{\vspace{6pt}} Full example: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{p{4cm}p{4cm}} Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur & adipisicing elit\\ \noalign{\vspace{6pt}}% sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore & et dolore magna aliqua.\\ ...

Works fine here: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{threeparttable,tabularx,booktabs,kantlipsum} \begin{document} \kant[1-3] \paragraph*{Real interest rate}is the lending rate adjusted for the price level. The inflation adjustment is made via the GDP deflator. \begin{threeparttable} \label{varmacro} \caption{\footnotesize Variables sources} ...
