This seems like a basic question so it's probably out there, but I couldn't find an answer.
I'm trying to figure out how to move paragraph text to a new line after a header. I've read that you need to include two spaces after the end of the header in order for it to register as a new line. I tried adding two spaces after the header and it didn't make any difference. I also tried just adding an extra line space in the code between the header and the body, and that didn't add a space here.
Here's a reproducible example of my problem. Notice that I only have this problem when header text is followed by body text. I have no problem getting the text to display on a new line/new paragraph when it's just two lines of body text.
--- title: "test" date: "10/2/2020" output: pdf_document --- #### Title [header format] Paragraph text [normal format] Title [normal format] Paragraph text [normal format]
After knitting to PDF from RStudio, this is what I get:
How can I get the body text after the header to display on a new line?
