  • \baselineskip=0pt Feb 14, 2017 at 20:29

    \offinterlineskip that disables the normal line spacing with \baselineskip and also sets \lineskip to zero. Feb 14, 2017 at 20:37
  • I try to catch it in the document - Settings - LATEX but it brings me error: \ baselineskip, \ Lineskip: missing number, treaed as zero...

1 Answer 1


A) Document > Setings ... > Text layout >

  1. Set Vertical Space in Paragraph separation to Custom and 0 pt.
  2. Set Line spacing to Single or even Custom with some value below 1.

B) Set spaces around the display mode:


But not in the preamble, so you will need a ERT TeX box (Ctrl+L) to insert this at some point before the first formula.

Alternatively, in the Math toolbar, change the display mode (Ctrl+Shift+H) by online mode (Ctrl+H) but if you maintain formulas at center do not use the normal center environment as this increase the vertical space. Use a ERT box with \hfil before each formula.

BTW, beside the horrible layout, it is not a good idea fix every length to 0pt as this limit LaTeX options to fit things properly. Whenever possible left some glue, like 2pt plus 1 pt minus 1 pt.
