    No. Either it is \onehalfspacing, or it is \linespread{1.15} (does not require \setspace), or \setspace{1.15}. setspace takes into account the problem of footnotes, lists, &c. Note \onehalfspacing is not \setstretch{1.5}, contrary to what might naively think. – Bernard Dec 27 '16 at 17:39
  • I do not know, but it could be that you are stuck in the MS word way of thinking. You are not suppose to adjust the lines space - choose a document type, and the format is already as it should be. – hpekristiansen Dec 27 '16 at 17:49
