# Command/vskip

## Description

The TeX \vskip command injects vertical space into a document, but should be avoided in ConTeXt code.

The \blank subsystem can deal with many spacing-related issues that \vskip cannot address. The command retains information about what happened before (and might happen next); bare \vskips interfere with this mechanism.

Consequently, spacing problems related to \vskip are likely resolved by using \blank.
