# Line spacing in TeX

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?

• `\baselineskip=1.5\baselineskip`? – Paul Gessler Dec 29 '15 at 17:33
• Why write with TeX, LaTeX is much more convenient?! – Keks Dose Dec 29 '15 at 17:36
• What do you think `\font\preloaded=cmr9` is doing? – egreg Dec 29 '15 at 17:45
• @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
