# [texhax] Pretty easy Question about \vspace and \paragraph

Wed Aug 29 02:21:25 CEST 2012

Hi everyone,

I am new to latex and I am trying to typesetting my homework using latex. A small problem confused me all the way.

Here is a small example:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\paragraph{Hello} this is a paragraph\\
\vspace{4mm}
something here\\
some other things here\\
\end{document}

When I compiled the code above, the \vspace does not show its effect on the direct following paragraph. "something here" still closely located with above paragraph. Can anybody tell me why? Or is there any method to make more space between the paragraph and "something here".

Thanks!!!
