The LaTeX setspace package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The setspace package replaces the doublespace package. It produces double and one-and-one-half line spacing based on the point size in use. The default is single spacing. When you add the setspace package, you can set the overall document spacing and the spacing for portions of the document. Changing spacing in the entire document doesn't affect footnotes, for which you must specify spacing individually. In addition to the package commands, a linespacing option is available through the Options and Packages command on the Typeset menu.

Because the onehalfspace environment increases the spacing, you should avoid using it in a double-spaced document. The setspace package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/setspace directory.
