PS formatting question

Postby mudbug25 » Mon Jan 04, 2010 11:35 am

Quick question about formatting the final draft. I'm sure this isn't a critical point but I'm curious.

I wrote my drafts in the form of single spaced paragraphs with a full line break in between the paragraphs. In my opinion, it looks clean, professional, and readable in this format.

However as an English major all of my work has been in a more prosey double spaced indented paragraph form. I suppose this would be the more "correct" form, but it doesn't look as nice.

What have yall done?

Double space. This has been discussed before, and it seems the general conclusion has always been double spaced.

Thanks, that's what I was leaning towards.

What font are you guys using? Is arial 11 pt. fine? Right now I am in 12 pt.


The standard issue 12 pt. Times New Roman.
