What spacing should you use when writing a report?

Fonts and Spacing In general, use a ‘serif’ font (such as ‘Times New Roman’). They are more comfortable to read. Fonts should be a minimum of 12 point and 1.5 line spacing is recommended unless otherwise specified. Titles and headings may be in a bold ‘sans serif’ font (such as ‘Ariel’).
