So when I first started out with my file I had gaps between paragraphs and no indent, as I was using the parskip package as listed below in my pre amble. At some point for a reason unbeknown to me this stopped working and now I have indents separating paragraphs and no line break at all. Have tried loads of different things but can't seem to find the problem. Perhaps it's a contradiction in one of the packages I included later on?? Thank you in advance for any advice you may be able to give!

Here's my pre amble:

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{article}      
\graphicspath{ {paperfigures/} }
  • id you try removing them one at a time or putting parskip last?

Your preamble is not very helpful ... you need to shorten it to only relevant packages, for which you find that changed document layout. As far I see, no one from preamble influence on it.

Tray the following MWE, if it works for you:

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{article}



If result is as you like to have, add to above MWE packages which you really need in your document.

Package lipsum is for dummy text, with \setlength... the indent is set to zero (as you like to have) and vertical space between paragraphs.

Hope this will help you to find desired solution/document yayout.
