I try to tune spacing before and after table float. I've noticed, that there is some space after float, that I can't change.

Here is same table, but without float.

And here is the code:

\documentclass[oneside,final,14pt]{extreport}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{setspace}
\setlength{\intextsep}{0pt}
\doublespacing

\begin{document}    
    \lipsum[1]

    \begin{table}[!h]
        \begin{tabular}{|l|l|}
            \hline
            Test & Test \\ \hline
            Test & Test \\ \hline
            Test & Test \\ \hline
            Test & Test \\ \hline
        \end{tabular}
    \end{table}

    \lipsum[2]
\end{document}

How to remove or change this space?

It is just your normal (doubled) line spacing, as you have set the extra space added around floats to 0pt) Without the table table environment the tabular acts like an over-sized letter and does not fit within the specified baseline spacing so at that point TeX gives up and uses \lineskip glue (1pt) as a minimum separation.

  • Ok, this kind of behaviour I expected. I want to have line spacing after table, but I want to remove \intextsep after it. How to do it normal way? I have only hack way: \AtEndEnvironment{table}{\vspace{-\intextsep}}, but it can't determine, if my table inserted into text. – noxwell May 5 '17 at 12:03
  • @noxwell you have set intextsep to 0pt so there is nothing to do for \vspace{-\intextsep} Consider your table shrunk to zero size, the space you show is the space that would be there anyway, the large inter-line spacing that you have specified. – David Carlisle May 5 '17 at 14:16
  • I set intextsep to zero to show, that there is some space left. In my document I want to actually have equal space before and after table. But I can't tune them independently. Is it possible? – noxwell May 5 '17 at 17:16
