I'm having trouble handling vertical space with my custom environments. I noticed that using \unskip after the environment eliminates that space, but I have found now solution for the space before the environment.

My definition is as follows (I'm using the enumitem package):


Any ideas on how to avoid that previous vspace?

    While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it. I attempted to reproduce the problem and was not able to with a basic test case. Commented Jan 17, 2013 at 5:09
  • Yes, you have a point. I can't reproduce the problem either in a MWE. It seems to be a problem of my big document. I'll check and see.

You've set parsep twice. Remove the second occurence parsep=.5\baselineskip

  • You're right. I've deleted the first one in the question. Cheers!
