### Double Spacing in LaTex

To doublespace a LaTeX document, you should include the line

\usepackage{setspace}

\doublespacing

will make the text of the whole document doublespaced.  Footnotes,
figures, and tables will still be singlespaced, however. For one-and-a-half

\onehalfspacing

In order to make a part of the text of your document singlespaced, you can
put:

\begin{singlespace}

at the beginning of the text you want singlespaced, and

\end{singlespace}

at the end.

You can also set the spacing to be something other than doublespaced; for
example, if you wanted to have one-and-a-quarter spacing between lines,
use the line

\setstretch{1.25}

before your \begin{document} command, and after the
\usepackage{setspace} line.

Thank you!
Told me exactly what I needed to know.
LaTeX can be so confusing sometimes.

Thanks. It was actually not my own, but copied from somewhere with specified source link which has disappeared. Good to know it helps.
