How do I increase the amount of white space in between two parboxes? enter image description here

MWE:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\parbox[t][][t]{.5\linewidth}{\lipsum[1]} 
\parbox[t][][t]{.5\linewidth}{\lipsum[2]} 

\end{document}

  • a parbox has no spacing rules at all, it is just positioned like a letter, you have one word space like X X (so your line is overfull as you have paragraph indent, a .5\linewidth box, a word space, another .5\linewidth. so you can put any space between them that you would put between letters eg \hfill and then make them narrower so there is room between them Commented Mar 7, 2017 at 7:48

Something like this?

more space

Note that this gives bad box warnings because of the narrow columns and possibly the Latin.

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\noindent
\parbox[t][][t]{.475\linewidth}{\lipsum[1]}\hfill
\parbox[t][][t]{.475\linewidth}{\lipsum[2]}

\end{document}
