I am new to LaTeX. I was writing a document in LaTeX. I want to increase the spacing between the vertical lines, I can use \vspace{2mm} but that is not possible to write at end of every line.

So can you please tell me a code for this.

    I presume you mean increase the vertical spacing between the lines instead of increase the spacing between the vertical lines. Oct 6, 2016 at 10:52

There's also the setspace package (place in preamble):


There's \openup macro (to use in text).

\openup .5em

You could also


The 2nd argument to \fontsize provides the default baselineskip (the first argument is the font size)
