In the 'amsart' document class, the 'setspace' package doesn't work. The 'linespread' command, in the preamble, does work, but I don't want the same line spacing throughout my document (i.e. I want certain sections to be single-spaced, some others to be double-spaced, etc.). How can I do this?

  • When asking questions it is better to provide a full minimal working example (MWE) both in order to demonstrate what you are trying to do and to help others help you. The MWE should like like \documentclass...\begin{document}...\end{document}, it should compile and contain close to the minimal amount of code needed to explain/demonstrate what you are asking. This saves a lot of time for everyone. – user30471 Oct 21 '14 at 4:58

I don't have problems with setspace and amsart.

  • why is it that when I use the environment \begin{doublespace}...\end{doublespace}, it double-spaces the whole page, and not just the portion of the page I want double-spaced? – Rohan Oct 21 '14 at 5:45
  • @Rohan I can't reproduce it. May be you need to update or something. – user11232 Oct 21 '14 at 5:48
