I want to end a line in justified text without having the line streched. Basically I want \linbreak to justify the one line it ends left.

For this I dont want to use setparsizes (or similar) since I still want be able to use \par.

Thank you

    \\ is the standard command for that – David Carlisle Mar 17 at 16:08

You can either use \\ or \newline and none of it will hinder the use of \par

Using \\

This is a line that I want to break the line after.\\ This is the next line

or

This is a line that I want to break the line after.\\
This is the next line

Using \newline

This is a line that I want to break the line after.\newline This is the next line

or

This is a line that I want to break the line after.\newline
This is the next line

  • using a blank line is very different to using \\ the question I think asks for \\ a line break not a new paragraph. – David Carlisle Mar 17 at 16:26
  • I mentioned at the end that skipping a line will render your next line like a paragraph. But I'll edit the answer for \\ and \newline, cheers :-) – Syed Ali Mar 17 at 16:28
  • yes but it's the only code block you show and you don't say that the effects of You can use \\, \newline, or you can skip a line in the editor. are different, so it ends up being misleading (even though everything you do say is true:-) – David Carlisle Mar 17 at 16:29
  • Somehow I thought that \newline was bad practice. But you are totally right, sorry for the dump question. – MagunRa Mar 17 at 16:57
