# Space between lines of large titles

I'm setting up a title sheet after the book cover and I'm having a hard time.

This title has very small line spacing.

I've tried using \setstretch{xx} but it didn't work.

What can I do?

The code is very simple:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\newpage
%
% Folha de rosto

%
$\,$
%
\vfill \vfill
$\,$
%
\begin{center}
\textsc{\Huge{Huge Title Very Important}}\\ %Título
\end{center}
%
%
$\,$
\vspace{0.25cm}

~\hrulefill ~\\

\vspace{0.5cm}

\centering\textsc{\large{\textbf{Especial Colection}}}\\ %Coleção

\vspace{1.5cm}
$\,$

\vfill \vfill
%
\end{document}


Thank you very much for your attention.

• Could you please post a compilable code? Sep 16 at 22:07
• Ok, I thought it would be a basic code. send... Sep 17 at 4:47
• Huge Title \\[10cm] Very Important Sep 17 at 5:02
• you end the paragraph so are setting Huge text on the baseline for normalsize Sep 17 at 7:28
• @Symbol1 that's working around the erroneous input rather than fixing the error though. Sep 17 at 7:29

Your problem here is that \Huge doesn't have an accompanying \par that would set the appropriate baseline skip - necessary to allow for gaps between lines. Instead you should use a construction like this:

\begin{center}
\scshape\Huge
Huge Title Very Important
\end{center}


Here's a complete, minimal example:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\vspace*{\fill}

\begin{center}
\scshape\Huge
Huge Title Very Important
\end{center}

\vspace{25mm}

\noindent~\hrulefill ~

\vspace{5mm}

\begin{center}
\bfseries\large Special Collection
\end{center}

\vfill

\end{document}


Note that, by default, there is no bold small caps font. To achieve that, read Small Caps and Bold Face.
