When creating a new environment you may easily get bitten by extra spaces creeping in, which can potentially have fatal effects. For example when you want to create a title environment which suppresses its own indentation as well as the one on the following paragraph. The \ignorespaces command in the begin block of the environment will make it ignore any space after executing the begin block. The end block is a bit more tricky as special processing occurs at the end of an environment. With the \ignorespacesafterend LaTeX will issue an \ignorespaces after the special ‘end’ processing has occurred.

Every student planning to file and graduate must submit a dissertation/thesis for format review at least two weeks prior to the final filing deadline .  The format review is uploaded via the ProQuest ETD website .   Please complete all the required screens and SUBMIT your document online.  For additional information visit our ProQuest ETD FAQ page .  Graduate Division staff will review your submission and identify any formatting issues.  We will communicate with you via email regarding necessary changes to the document.  If a second upload is required, you will be notified once the formatting has been approved and no further changes are needed.  This is an important step to ensure your document is ready by the final filing deadline .

A quick and easy way of getting inter-line space for copy-editing is to change \baselinestretch  — \linespread {} (or, equivalently \renewcommand { \baselinestretch } {} ) may be adequate. Note that \baselinestretch changes don’t take effect until you select a new font, so make the change in the preamble before any font is selected. Don’t try changing \baselineskip : its value is reset at any size-changing command so that results will be inconsistent. For preference (and certainly for a production document, such as a dissertation or an article submission), use a line-spacing package. The only one currently supported is setspace . Setspace switches off double-spacing at places where even the most die-hard official would doubt its utility (footnotes, figure captions, and so on); it’s very difficult to do this consistently if you’re manipulating \baselinestretch yourself. (Note: do not be tempted by doublespace  — its performance under current LaTeX is at best problematical.) Of course, the real solution (other than for private copy editing) is not to use double-spacing at all. Universities, in particular, have no excuse for specifying double-spacing in submitted dissertations: LaTeX is a typesetting system, not a typewriter-substitute, and can (properly used) make single-spaced text even more easily readable than double-spaced typewritten text. If you have any influence on your university’s system (for example, through your dissertation supervisor), it may be worth attempting to get the rules changed (at least to permit a “well-designed book” format). Double-spaced submissions are also commonly required when submitting papers to conferences or journals. Fortunately (judging by the questions from users in this author’s department), this demand is becoming less common. Documentation of setspace appears as TeX comments in the package file itself. setspace This answer last edited: 2013-10-28
