[Tex/LaTex] Vertical space and its size


I don't know if somebody has already asked, but:
how should I do a vertical space of a size of a half/quarter of page?

Best Answer

Use a \vspace with the appropriate fraction of \textheight or \paperheight...

\usepackage{lipsum} %for dummy text

As egreg says in the comments, the space will be removed if it occurs at the top of a page. If you want the space in that case, just use \vspace* in place of \vspace.
