### Changing line spacing

Hi,

thank you guys very much indeed for this awesome template and the detailed README you've provided.
I was trying to change the line spacing, but I don't seem to be able to do it.

I tried the options onehalfspacing and doublespacing in both \documentclass[]{} - in the main - and \PassOptionsToPackage{}{} in classicthesis-config.tex but both don't seem to be affecting the layout at all.

I guess there must be something I'm missing either in classicthesis-config.tex or in classicthesis.sty

Any help is much appreciated.
Cheers,
Fab

Please provide a minimal working example for us to reproduce the issue.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Fab,

welcome to the forum!

Make the setting after \usepackage{classicthesis}, such as \usepackage[onehalfspacing]{setspace}.

Hi guys,

thanks for the fairly prompt reply.
I should've removed the post as a couple of hours after having posted it I worked out the solution, but then I thought that having a thread like this one wouldn't really hurt, would it?

The following few lines in classicthesis-config.tex (L251) contain the solution
1. %----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. % CHANGING TEXT AREA
3. %----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.
5.
6. \linespread{1.25} % a bit more for Palatino
7. \areaset[current]{312pt}{761pt} % 686 (factor 2.2) + 33 head + 42 head \the\footskip
8. \setlength{\marginparwidth}{7em}%
9. \setlength{\marginparsep}{2em}%
10. %----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The \linespread{1.25} is the one that has to be changed accordingly. I found out that 1.25 was good enough to reproduce the 'onehalfspacing' option.

I hope this helps other people who might experience the same issue.

Cheers,
Fab

Hi Fab,

indeed, it's much better to post the solution instead of deleting the question, so there's one more solution that googling people can find,

thanks!

Stefan
