With two-column footnotes using eledmac (based on this question), line spacing via setspace is applied to footnotes as well. How can I preserve single spacing in these two-column footnotes?

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
\usepackage{eledmac}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\patchcmd{\twocolfootfmtX}{\raggedright}{}{}{}
\foottwocolX{A}
\let\footnote\footnoteA
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum*[1]\footnote{\lipsum*[3-4]}\lipsum*[6-7] % text AND footnote are double-spaced!
\end{document}

You must migrate to reledmac and use the \bhooknoteX and \bhookgroupX commands.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
\usepackage{reledmac}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\arrangementX[A]{twocol}
\colalignX{\justifying}
\makeatletter
 \bhooknoteX[A]{\setstretch {\setspace@singlespace}}
 \bhookgroupX[A]{\setstretch {\setspace@singlespace}}
\makeatother
\let\footnote\footnoteA
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum*[1]\footnote{\lipsum*[3-4]}\lipsum*[6-7] % text AND footnote are double-spaced!
\end{document}

In this MWE, I have also change the way you modify notes alignement, using the \colalignX command.

  • How would I do the same for paragraph-arranged notes? If I set A to paragraph I get an unidentified control sequence error at \makeatother. – fps.vogel Nov 21 '15 at 15:38
  • sorry? I don't understand your question. – Maïeul Nov 21 '15 at 15:40
  • Apologies. Example: How can I make a B series of notes also single-spaced but with \arrangementX[B]{paragraph}? Simply adding this line then below it copying the lines from your example between \makeatletter and let\footnote\footnoteA (inclusive) and changing them to refer to B creates an error. – fps.vogel Nov 21 '15 at 15:51
  • Please provides your MWE. It will be clearer. – Maïeul Nov 21 '15 at 15:53
  • Apologies again: because I've begun using critical rather than familiar footnotes, I had to make a new MWE, so I posted a new question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/279347/…. – fps.vogel Nov 21 '15 at 16:58
