I have a document with line spacing 1.5. But I want the footnotes line spacing 1. How could I do this? I tried the package setspaces but does not allow me this option.

The package you need to load for the purpose at hand is called setspace, not setspaces. After loading it, you can issue the command


to set up one-and-one-half line-spacing in the main body of the text; text in footnotes will remain single-spaced.
