Is there a way to make the line spacing different than that of the forced line spacing?

For instance I would like

blah blah blah \\

blah blah blah.

to consistently (document wide) produce the equivalent of

blah blah blah 


blah blah blah.

This even though the spacing within each paragraph would remain just 1.

  • Are you using \\ to denote a paragraph break? – Werner Nov 8 '16 at 0:07

    your first fragment is a single paragraph, your second one is two. – David Carlisle Nov 8 '16 at 0:09

    it would be simpler just use a blank line not \\ and set \parskip to 4\baselineskip – David Carlisle Nov 8 '16 at 0:14
  • You're correct David Carlisle. I'm fixing the question. – wolf_math Nov 8 '16 at 1:22
  • Your first example produces an underfull box because \\ ought not be used to end lines except in special environments such as tabular and array. – cfr Nov 8 '16 at 2:53
