Questions tagged [paragraphs]

{paragraphs} are distinct text divisions that begin on a new, usually indented line. In TeX, a paragraph is ended by the \par command or at least one blank line. If your question is about the \paragraph or \subparagraph sectioning commands, use {sectioning} plus {sections-paragraphs} instead.
