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 

\vspace{4\baselineskip}

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
