# Footnote line spacing is wrong [closed]

I am using a `lyx` package to make footnotes in a XeTeX document that compiles to a PDF.

The package is:

``````#\DeclareLyXModule{Bigfoot}
#DescriptionBegin
#Adds some additional footnote insets. Based upon the bigfoot package.
#DescriptionEnd

Format 11

InsetLayout Custom:RoemischeFussnote
LyXType         custom
LatexName       footnoteR
LatexType       command
Decoration      classic
Font
Size    Small
EndFont
MultiPar        true
LabelString     "Roemische Fussnote"
Preamble
\usepackage[]{bigfoot}
\usepackage[multiple]{footmisc}
\DeclareNewFootnote{R}[Roman]
\MakeSorted{footnoteR}
EndPreamble
End
``````

The document has globally a line spacing of 1.5 and uses the KOMA-Script class `scrbook`.

Now my problem is that the footnotes look extremely ugly: They have a spacing of 1 line between different footnotes, but a long footnote that extends to the next line has a line spacing of 1.5 in the paragraph.

Two questions:

1. How can I set a linespacing of 1 for the complete footnote apparatus?

2. How can I achieve that different footnotes can share a line and do not get their own line in the footnote apparatus of the page? (some footnotes are very short and it looks quite silly the way it is now.

I don’t use LyX, so a minimal working example (MWE) would be nice. But I would remove `footmisc` and use the according KOMA-Script option `footnotes=multiple`. Question 2 is a RTFM of `bigfoot` documentation. –  Speravir Nov 1 '12 at 22:53
There is no need to shout RTFM at me. I have explained my case and I believe that the difficulties originate from incompatibilities between bigfoot, footmisc, koma-script and possibly LyX. And this incompatibility is NOT covered by all respective manuals! What I have learned so far is that I should not use LyX. –  juri Nov 2 '12 at 0:02
@Juri: I've never heard that one can use packages of LyX in LaTeX. I know you can use LaTeX in LyX (uses another notation). With KOMA-Script be careful with package `bigfoot` -- as I remember is there a problem. A MWE that shows you you configured your footnotes and shows the quite silly look would be very helpful. –  Kurt Nov 2 '12 at 0:41
@juri: Once again in other words (“RTFM” is not shouting, it’s simply an abbreviation). In the `bigfoot` documentation I can see an option `para`, which I miss in your LyXModule. And try out a run without `footmisc`. –  Speravir Nov 2 '12 at 1:22
As an info: LyX calls the latex/xetex compilers invisibly to the end user. Obviously it produces latex (or XeTex) code before doing that. A Lyx package defines which latex code will be inserted to the latex source code. It is not itself valid latex code, but a meta-script. I showed it, so that you know how my latex code it generated. I will prepare a MWE so that you can follow more easily without having to read the documentation of lyx. –  juri Nov 2 '12 at 5:56
