Page 48 of the memoir manual states this about using \DoubleSpacing:

The spacing in footnotes and floats (e.g., captions) is un- altered, which is usually required once the controllers see what a blanket double spacing brings.

The problem is that this is not working for me. When I compile several memoir style documents, there is no difference between \DoubleSpacing and \DoubleSpacing*. I would like to use double spacing as described in the manual (No double spaces in footnotes and floats). Any help?

In case of doubt, please see How do you accept an answer?. – Gonzalo Medina Oct 1 '12 at 16:56

  • I have the same question: how can I get memoir to leave footnotes single-spaced with the un-starred \DoubleSpacing command? I went through a whole series of tests to determine which package might be causing trouble, and I finally identified it: arabxetex, which I use to typeset Unicode Arabic text. I call the package with the line \usepackage[novoc,fdf2alif,utf]{arabxetex}, but the same problem exists when the package is called without options. If there is a solution, I would greatly appreciate learning about it. Would you consider reopening this question, @GonzaloMedina? – Alex Roberts Aug 20 '14 at 21:13
  • I have decided to post a similar question separately, with an example file to illustrate the issue. – Alex Roberts Aug 23 '14 at 3:00
