# scrlttr2 - onehalfspacing in main body, singlespace in address

I'm writing a letter with scrlttr2 and I want the main body in \onehalfspacing. But even with

\begin{onehalfspacing}
TEXT BODY
\end{onehalfspacing}


the address is set in one-half spacing as well. This takes up unnecessary space and makes the address too long to fit into the window of a windowed envelope.

I've tried inserting the address into a singlespace environment - no effect. I've searched for a KOMAvar that governs the spacing - nothing (at least nothing I could find.)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

\documentclass[a4paper]{scrlttr2}
\usepackage[ngerman,english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\setkomavar{fromname}{Jane Doe}
\setkomavar{fromemail}{jane.doe@dover.foo}
\setkomavar{place}{Internet}
\setkomavar{subject}{Foo for foo}

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{John Doe\\
Dover Institute\\
WH6 TR5 Foobar}

\KOMAoptions{fromalign=right,frommobilephone=false,fromemail=true,foldmarks=false}

\begin{onehalfspacing}

foo foo foo foo foo foo foo.

\blindtext

\closing{Faithfully,}
\end{onehalfspacing}
\end{letter}
\end{document}

• Move \begin{onehalfspacing} after \opening{...} – Ulrike Fischer Aug 31 '15 at 21:46
• That solved it! Thank you so much! (And I feel a little stupid...) – Taunch Aug 31 '15 at 22:54

The command \opening does more than printing the greeting: It sets up the first page. So if you want something to affect only "the text body" it is better to start if after \opening. So move \begin{onehalfspacing} behind \opening{...}.
