# Latex/Katex Beginner Question regarding creating headline

#1

Hi,
I want to create headline using this Latex code
$$\Large{Grow your expertise}$$
But the result has no spaces and looks like this. What might be causing this?

#2

I found a workaround, by writing it like this
$$\Large Grow{\ }your{\ }expertise{\ }$$

Is this supposed to be?
Thanks - absolut new to latex/katex ^^

I used this site whenever referencing latex in dynalist

#4

The LaTeX environment is in math mode, that’s why it swallows spaces and uses an italic (math) font.

You can set text in math mode using the \text command, e.g.

$$\text{\Large{Grow your expertise}}$$

Exactly what I needed
