# vskip and unskip after section heading

I've defined a macro that puts images and text in a table and puts some whitespace around it like that:

\newcommand{\iec}[3]{%
\unskip
\vskip 0.5cm
\begin{tabular}{cl}

• neither vskip nor unskip are expected to be used mid document, better to use \addvspace which is defined in latex to handle adjacent skips – David Carlisle Oct 28 at 16:33
• @DavidCarlisle Actually the \addvspace helps in mitigating the need to have an additional unskip however, there's still unwanted additional whitespace when used directly after a heading. – Dschoni Oct 29 at 8:30
