    Prefer

    Can use it like 'write it how you prefer', or it is better like 'write it as you prefer'?

    Note my corrections above.

    Write it however you like.
    Write it in any way you like.

    If the person has two or more options, you could say "Use whichever version you prefer".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
