Notes from the Library

Sun, 02 Dec 2012

The standard way to do double spacing which everyone recommends as clean and neat is to use the setspace package since it doesn't double-space your footnotes which is generally desired.

Turns out that (a) this isn't the typographical standard of double-spacing (b) it's not the same as Microsoft Word which everyone else's extended essays/dissertations/theses will be written in.

So instead use this:

\usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
\setstretch{2}

and if you change the spacing be sure to do it again:

\singlespacing
[...]
\doublespacing\setstretch{2}
