Forms typed or handwritten ? (partner visa 820)

Hi guys,

With all those forms that i need to provide with the partner visa (820) application (form 888, 80,40SP,47SP), can they be either handwritten or typed ? Or do they need to be handwritten? Just wondering, because at the top of those forms it says:' Please use a pen, and write neatly in English using BLOCK LETTERS. '
If I am allowed to type it do i still need to use block letters ?
I found a few posts about this but they are all a bit old, so i would like to double-check.

Any help would be muchly appreciated !

We typed it ours, in caps. The only setback from that is that we had issues saving the edited document (saving the form after we typed stuff in) so we had to fill a few pages, print them, fill in more, print them etc. However, it was good because the form automatically formatted things like dates, which was helpful.
We weren't penalized for typing it, so if they are consistent others shouldn't be either.

No - those instructions are only for those filling it out by hand. They actually prefer it typed in - much easier for them to read that way.

I don't believe we did type in CAPS. I only did if it specified, such as BLOCK LETTERING on the F888s.
