Proper MS format Headers (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
I tend to use " | " symbol to separate my last name & the story title on my docx headers.

I believe " / " is more popular, but I have never seen this rule explicitly stated.

I also tend to choose headers that have a slight opacity.

I'm not sure if either of these things are worth worrying about.
