Hi all-

I'm exporting a document from Ulysses to LaTeX that contains sequences of (block) quotations. At first blush, Ulysses appears to format this as:

\begin{quotation}
paragraph 1
\end{quotation}
\begin{quotation}
paragraph 2
\end{quotation}
\begin{quotation}
paragraph 3
\end{quotation}

\begin{quotation}
paragraph 1
paragraph 2
paragraph 3
\end{quotation}

so it results in excessive spacing between paragraphs.

Obviously, I could edit this stuff out of the LaTeX file, but haven't discovered an elegant way to handle this in Ulysses.

Is there a technique that already accommodates this issue?

Best wishes, Charles

Well, once again, to respond to my own question, it seems that LaTeX's

\begin{quotation}
\end{quotation}

is considered an "environment," and not really a "paragraph style." So treating it as such in Ulysses exports what would be semantically expected.

The LaTeX quotation environment might be better handled as a "markup style," I guess, but I'm not sure that's what the Soul Men intended markup to mean.

(A further observation: once you get into editing the LaTeX template, it's unclear to me whether you can create anything other than inline or paragraph markup. I won't have time to experiment with this until later...)
