# [texhax] Vspace Question

Sun Sep 2 01:23:19 CEST 2012

Hi tex group,

I am writing my essay using latex, and find a problem that things I defined using \newcommand shows different effect compared with writing it directly in the body text. Hope someone could explain why. Here is a small example.

\documentclass{article}
\newcommand{\sep}[1]{\vspace{#1}\noindent}
\begin{document}
Hello

\sep{4mm}
some things here

\vspace{4mm}\noindent
Are texts above truly indent?
\end{document}

By compiling it, we can see that the second line still somewhat indent although I give \noindent before. How could it happen? Thanks!

Zheng
