4.3 Double-Spacing

Whilst double-spacing is usually frowned upon in the world of modern typesetting, it is usually a requirement for anything that may need hand-written annotations, which can include theses. This extra space gives the examiners room to write comments.4.1

Double-spacing can be achieved via the setspace package. You can either set the spacing using the package options singlespacing, onehalfspacing or doublespacing, or you can switch via the declarations:

\singlespacing
\onehalfspacing
\doublespacing

So, if your thesis has to be double-spaced, you can do:

Listing 9:

\usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}

... comments.4.1
Despite the current digital age, many people still use hand-written annotations on manuscripts. It's unlikely that your examiners have pens that are incompatible with your paper.
