I am using \font\preloaded=cmr9 \magnification=1200 in a TeX document. How can I change the line spacing (from, say, 1 to 1.5) throughout the document?

    Why write with TeX, LaTeX is much more convenient?! – Keks Dose Dec 29 '15 at 17:36

    @KeksDose: That's not the question ;-) – user31729 Dec 29 '15 at 17:46

You can modify \baselineskip as in LaTeX: here's a complete example.

\font\preloaded=cmr9 \magnification=1200
\baselineskip=1.5\baselineskip
