How to change the typeset line spacing
Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific
If the document class for your document doesn't include options that change
the line spacing, use the LaTeX setspace package to specify single,
one-and-one-half, or double spacing. (Note that some shells and some documents
created with older versions of SWP and SW may require the doublespace
package, now superseded by setspace.)
If your document was created with a Style Editor shell, these packages
probably won't work. Instead, make any necessary line spacing changes to the
typesetting specifications using the Style Editor.
Changing the line spacing of the entire document:
- Add the setspace package
to your document.
- If you're using Version 4.0 and later,
- On the Typeset toolbar, click the Options and Packages button
or, from the
Typeset menu, choose
Options and Packages.
- Choose the Package Options tab.
- From the Packages in Use box, select
setspace and choose
- In the Category box, select
- In the Options box, select the spacing you want.
- Choose OK twice to return to your document.
If you're using an earlier version of the program,
- From the Typeset menu, choose
- Click the mouse in the entry area.
- On a new line at the end of the entries, type the command that corresponds to
the spacing you want: \singlespacing,
\onehalfspacing, or \doublespacing.
- Choose OK.
Changing the line spacing for a portion of a document:
- Add the setspace package to your document.
- Place the insertion point at the start of the first paragraph whose spacing
you want to change.
- Enter a TeX field.
- In the entry area,
- Type \singlespacing,
\onehalfspacing, or \doublespacing, depending on the spacing you want.
- Choose OK.
- Place the insertion point where you want to return to the original spacing.
- Repeat steps 3-5.
