How many blank lines before scene headings (using Amazon Storywriter)?

Question : How many blank lines should be before scene headings and secondary scene headings in a screenplay? Note that I am using Amazon Storywriter.

Detail : I am writing a screenplay with Amazon Storywriter. I have noticed that when I write a scene heading, 2 blank lines are inserted prior to the heading. I was wondering if secondary scene headings should also be like that, or if I should label them as 'actions' with Amazon Storywriter to give them just 1 blank line.

To add to my confusion, I looked up a few random scripts of films I like, and they often had just 1 blank line before scene headings.
