I'm writing my thesis, and I'd like to have a blank space between the paragraphs in the chapters, so I used the following code


However, this command does also affect the Contents, List of Figures and List of Tables sections, that instead I'd like with no spacing between the lines. How can I fix this?

    best is to use a class that is designed for vertically spaced paragraphs, but failing that using the parskip package instead of setting \parskip directly will remove some of the bad effects. – David Carlisle Sep 5 '18 at 19:25

    Said that, you can also change the \parskip only for some parts of text, eg.g.: in \parskip3em aaa \par bbb \par {\parskip0pt ccc\par ddd\par} eee\par fff. You can apply a 0pt paragraph skip only to the table of contents in same way. – Fran Sep 5 '18 at 19:58
