Double Spacing in LaTex

To doublespace a LaTeX document, you should include the line


after your \documentclass line.

Before your \begin{document} command,


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


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


at the beginning of the text you want singlespaced, and


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


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

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