I basically cannot go to a new indented paragraph in LaTeX. I'm writing in WinEdt and when I leave en empty line between two paragraphs, it also generates an empty line at the output. But I don't want an empty line between the two, I want an indented text.

I used to use \\ but some colleagues told me to avoid this. So how does LaTeX automatically make a new indented paragraph?

Edit: I copy the code here.

\documentclass[parskip=half]{scrbook}

\begin{document}

  • Indented paragraphs are the default. What did you do to change it? – Ulrike Fischer Feb 13 '16 at 15:28
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Your document probably has some reference to the parskip package or is setting \parskip in some other way. Without seeing a minimal example of code it's difficult to say more. – egreg Feb 13 '16 at 15:31

Use

\documentclass[parskip=off]{scrbook}
  • I think he is already doing that: I leave en empty line between two paragraphs. – Arash Esbati Feb 13 '16 at 15:28
  • I use at least one empty line between paragraphs, but at the output it also puts an empty line. – Ehsan Feb 13 '16 at 15:28
  • If there is also an empty line in the output, then you load the package parskip, or set the length \parskip in the preamble or the option parskip if using a KOMA-Script class. None of these schould be present in your document. – user2478 Feb 13 '16 at 15:41
  • but then the problem is we never can make an empty line between paragraphs, can we? – Ehsan Feb 13 '16 at 15:45
  • You can: \bigskip is for one line, \medskip a half line. – user2478 Feb 13 '16 at 15:47
