The post is great, but when should I use the \\ or the \newline command?

• A good question, thanks!
The \\ command is often used in tabular and array, to end the line. Also, I use it in none-paragraphed text. For example to end a line in a numbered list (multiline item).

I’m sure there are other applications, just can think of anything right now…

2. Just for the sake of adding a comment: I occasionally use the “\noindent” command during paragraph breaks if I don’t want to change the global setting through the “\setlength\parindent{0pt}” in the preamble.
