# How can I fix the wrong line spacing between footnotes?

I'm writing an article and have some settings to get the desired font size and line spacing.

The main document looks right, but the footnotes are looking strange. Line spacing on the footnotes seem OK but different notes are too close to each other.

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, spanish]{article}
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.54}
\usepackage{parskip}   % separación entre parrafos
\parskip=12pt
\setlength{\parindent}{2em}
\usepackage[bottom,hang, flushmargin]{footmisc}

\begin{document}
Hello

One.\footnote{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Dolor sed viverra ipsum nunc aliquet bibendum enim. }

Two.\footnote{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Dolor sed viverra ipsum nunc aliquet bibendum enim.}
\end{document}


How can I force them to use a better spacing between notes, maybe the same than the line spacing, without affecting the main document? Or maybe I should reduce the line spacing within each single note.

• It's the line spacing within each note that's messed up. The spacing between notes is the default, and is okay. – barbara beeton Jul 26 '19 at 20:04
• you are exaggerating the inter-line spacing within the notes with \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.54} but leaving the spacing between notes unchanged. Normally even if forced to double space the main document you can go back to normal spacing in footnotes – David Carlisle Jul 26 '19 at 20:11

With the setspace package and \setstretch{1.5} instead of \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{setspace}
\setstretch{1.5}
\usepackage{parskip}
\parskip=12pt
\setlength{\parindent}{2em}
\usepackage[bottom,hang, flushmargin]{footmisc}

\begin{document}

Two.\footnote{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Dolor sed viverra ipsum nunc aliquet bibendum enim.}
