Probably a pretty basic question I’m over thinking but,... better to know.

I’ve used taper edge plaster board on wall before, but never on ceilings, and need to overboard a ceiling soon.

How do you deal with joining the non tapered edges of the boards? Eg the short edges?

Or is it better practice to use square edge and just have the whole thing skimmed? Or use taper ended and just tape the joints?
