I have hard time dealing with paragraph skip while keeping titlesec/titletoc, table of contents, list of figures and indentation the same (this is a french book). I have the following class:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{book}

In which I consider everything ok in terms of spacing... except paragraph spacing. I don't want any extra space in titlesec/titletoc, table of contents, list of figures and I want a standard french paragraph indentation.

In top of that, I want the space separating two paragraphs be set to the size of \normalsize. Currently, I tried,

\newlength{\textsize}
\makeatletter
\setlength{\textsize}{\f@size pt}
\makeatother
\setlength{\parskip}{\textsize}

Indentation is ok, paragraph spacing is ok... but the spacing of elements in titlesec/titletoc, table of contents, list of figures is completely modified.

Then I tried:

\usepackage{parskip}
\frenchspacing

it protects the table of contents and the list of figures but introduces spaces in titlesec/titletoc and seem to remove indentation.

How to :

  • protect the table of contents (no extra spacing needed)
  • protect the list of figures (no extra spacing needed)
  • protect the local table of contents titlesec/titletoc (no extra spacing needed)
  • protect the current indentation
  • but... introduces a line skip of \normalsize between paragraphs?
  • I don't quite get you: if you want french spacing, \parskip=0pt (or 0pt plus 1pt if need be). Or do I miss something? – Bernard May 26 '15 at 8:07
  • frenchspacing was just a test. I need \setlength{\parskip}{\textsize} keeping the tocs/list of figures the same... – Vincent May 26 '15 at 8:40
  • Could we have a minimal example illustrating the problem? I don't quite see where you have extra spacing. – Bernard May 26 '15 at 11:54
