Nifty Nuggets: Spacing Standards (Part 2)

Today’s nugget focuses on the second half of the spacing standards for company templates.

Guideline
Do not place a bulleted list or numbered list directly below a heading. Introduce the list with a sentence or fragment.

Incorrect:

Correct:

Use a single space after a period between sentences.
A Heading 1 should always appear at the top of a new page. Do not create a page break before a new Heading 2, Heading 3, or Heading 4, unless it is necessary to keep information from breaking awkwardly between pages. (For example, you should create a page break to prevent a heading from being on one page while its text rolls to the next page.)
