I have a problem with the paragraph spacing in my \documentclass{article}. I am using \lstset{} function (Code Listings), LOF and TOF. I want to have a 1em spacing between my paragraph text and the Listings space above and below should have the same space like with my figures. I know that \usepackage{parskip} adds spaces but every where there is a "new line (picture or text)" there is added space. Is there a way where I can set the space in my premable? or other ways?

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside]{article}
\usepackage[top=25mm,bottom=20mm,left=35mm,right=30mm]{geometry}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx} % für Grafiken
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{caption} %Überschriften für Bilder
\captionsetup{font={small,it}}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage[numbers,square]{natbib}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{tabto}
\usepackage{paracol}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\usepackage[onehalfspacing]{setspace}
\usepackage{nomencl}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{float} %Position erzwingen
\usepackage{array} %feste Spaltenbreite einstellbar
\usepackage{eurosym}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\usepackage{acronym}


\begin{document}
\begin{titlepage}
    \centering
    \Huge
    Titlepage
\end{titlepage}

\setlength{\parindent}{0em} %keine Einrückung nach Absatz



\section{Mainbody}

This is the text in second paragraph. This is the text in second paragraph. This is the text in second  paragraph. 

\begin{figure}[H] %please put a picture here for compilation

  • Why don't you just use \vspace{1em} before the listing? – Johannes_B Aug 19 '18 at 5:24
  • is also an option, however then it is a little inconsistent... – Alan Aug 21 '18 at 20:29

As I understand the listings manual (you get it with texdoc listingson the command line), one might have aboveskip= and belowskip=, so I added both to your setup with a value of, as you asked, 1cm.

To have the same skip as other floats, the first thing ist to make listings a float as well. So I added float=hto the setup.

And that's it:

\lstset{language=PYTHON,label=List:python dummy,frame=single,captionpos=b,
  aboveskip=1cm, belowskip=1cm, float=h}
\begin{lstlisting}[caption=Python Dummy]
import socket
\end{lstlisting}

Looks good with your example!
