# \DoubleSpacing not working as described [closed]

Page 48 of the `memoir` manual states this about using `\DoubleSpacing`:

The spacing in footnotes and floats (e.g., captions) is un- altered, which is usually required once the controllers see what a blanket double spacing brings.

The problem is that this is not working for me. When I compile several memoir style documents, there is no difference between `\DoubleSpacing` and `\DoubleSpacing*`. I would like to use double spacing as described in the manual (No double spaces in footnotes and floats). Any help?

No problem. Thank you for accepting answers! – Gonzalo Medina Oct 1 '12 at 17:27
I have the same question: how can I get `memoir` to leave footnotes single-spaced with the un-starred `\DoubleSpacing` command? I went through a whole series of tests to determine which package might be causing trouble, and I finally identified it: `arabxetex`, which I use to typeset Unicode Arabic text. I call the package with the line `\usepackage[novoc,fdf2alif,utf]{arabxetex}`, but the same problem exists when the package is called without options. If there is a solution, I would greatly appreciate learning about it. Would you consider reopening this question, @GonzaloMedina? – Alex Roberts Aug 20 '14 at 21:13
