I am trying to typeset a long title using a {\LARGE ...}-Block.

Here is a minimal example:


    {\LARGE Very \\ Long \\ Title}

And the output of (latex + dvips + ps2pdf):

Output of the above example code

Question: How do I remove the vertical space between the first and the second line?

Info: If I use a {\normalsize...}-Block the spacing between the lines is as expected (equal vertical space between first and second line and between second and third line.

    Add a \par after Title. – user11232 Dec 8 '13 at 0:28
  • You don't want to remove the space between the first and second lines, but rather add space between the second and third lines. – egreg Dec 8 '13 at 0:31
  • I don't get that output at all. As is, I get three lines that are too close together. Adding the \par recommended by Harish Kumar, I get equally spaced lines with the correct \baselineskip. Did you leave something out of your MWE? – Dan Dec 8 '13 at 4:05
  • The above image is the actual result of the above code on my setup (Windows, MikTex) otherwise I wouldn't have added the image. – patrickvogt Dec 8 '13 at 9:18

One solution is to put the title into a flushleft, center or flushright environment as you desire the alignment.


\LARGE Very \\ Long \\ Title
\LARGE Very \\ Long \\ Title
\LARGE Very \\ Long \\ Title
