How to create single-spaced footnotes in a double-spaced Style Editor document

Version: 2.01 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Creating single-spaced footnotes in double-spaced documents is problematic if you are using a style created with Version 2.01 of the SW Style Editor. To work around the problem, you can edit the sebase.cls file in your sw20/tex/macros directory. Follow these steps to get the footnote spacing you want:

  1. Use an ASCII editor to open the sebase.cls file in the sw20/tex/macros directory.

  2. Search for the word makefn. Your search should reveal two occurrences of the word.

  3. Several lines after each occurrence, look for the string ####1%.

  4. In both places, change the string to ####1\endgraf%.

  5. Save and close the file.

  6. Open the style in the Style Editor.

  7. Under Global Parameters, make the footnote single-spaced.

  8. Under Paragraph, make Body Text double-spaced.

  9. Save the file and close the Style Editor.
