### Using {setspace} in LaTex to achieve "double spacing"

• Follow

Hello,

Once I have included \usepackage{setspace} - What is the next step to
achieve double spacing? I ran LaTex with this command, but I did not
see double spacing. Am I neglecting another command?

Thanks,
Ray L.

Thank you. However, TeX cannot run the file. What should I be seeing?

It's just a text file, so you should be able to read it. Basically,
you want to put \doublespacing after \begin{document}.

or \setstretch{2} which is more flexible since you can change the
number 2 to something else.
