I want to leave some vertical space after an item in an enumerate so that I can draw a diagram by hand there after I print out my document. Basically, I want the next item to show up as if I have text in the previous item. I kind of simulated what I want by adding some periods in this example (but I just want blank space):

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
  \item Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  \item .

  .

  .
  \item Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

This produces:

  • Use \vspace*{3cm}, where 3cm is changed to whatever space you want.
