# Line spacing 18 pt in r markdown [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

Iam writing my thesis in r markdown and want to change the line spacing to 18 pt. But i cant find a solution for it. I only found the setting for onehalf spacing or 1.5 spacing but no for exactly some arbitrary pt.

There is a small package for specifying explicit leading in any unit you want: The leading package. You use it by including \usepackage{leading} in your preamble and then issuing \leading{18pt} before the body text. This package essentially does the thing that @egreg did in this answer here (not in LaTeX3 syntax though).
\documentclass[11pt]{article}
