Latex footnotes issues

Hello everyone :slight_smile:

I am almost done with my thesis and I have moved from scrivener to LaTeX to make the final
adjustments. Consequently this is a Latex question, but I thought someone might be able
to help…

I have two problems:

  1. I added \DoubleSpacing to get the spacing required for the submission of the thesis but
    as a result my footnotes are double spaced as well. A quick search suggested that this is not
    the default functionality of the memoir class but for me everything is double spaced…

  2. When I add a footnote inside a table it creates two footnotes, the one duplicate of the other.

Here is the code:



%%% need more space for ToC page numbers

%%% need more space for ToC section numbers

%%% need more space for LoF numbers

%%% and do the same for the LoT

%%% set up the page layout
\settrimmedsize{\stockheight}{\stockwidth}{*}	% Use entire page



\usepackage{fancyvrb}			% Allow \verbatim et al. in footnotes
\usepackage{graphicx}			% To include graphics in pdf's (jpg, gif, png, etc)
\usepackage{booktabs}			% Better tables
\usepackage{tabulary}			% Support longer table cells
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}		% For UTF-8 support
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}		% Use T1 font encoding for accented characters
\usepackage{xcolor}				% Allow for color (annotations)

%\geometry{landscape}			% Activate for rotated page geometry

%\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}	% Activate to begin paragraphs with an empty
								% line rather than an indent

\def\myauthor{Author}			% In case these were not included in metadata

\def\myauthor{Dionysis Athinaios}
\def\mytitle{A Portfolio of Original Compositions}
