[Tex/LaTex] Is there something between singlespace and onehalfspace


Is there anything between singlespace and onehalfspace?

The reason is that, when I use singlespace it seems to be very compact, while onehalfspace puts more space between lines than I would like it to.

Note these come from the setspace package.

Best Answer

Yes. Using the setspace package with a 10pt document font, a factor between 1.0 and 1.25 would lie "between" \singlespacing and \onehalfspacing. An idea of the appropriate spacing that is dependent on the default font size is available from Why is the linespread factor as it is?.

Here's an example:

enter image description here

\usepackage{setspace,lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{setspace,lipsum}
\setstretch{1.125}\lipsum[2]% Line spread between \singlespacing and \onehalfspacing

Note that lipsum inserts a paragraph break at the end of every \lipsum by default, which is required to have different \linespread across paragraphs in the example.
