The header and footer in a document are great for providing coninuity and organisation throughout document pages. More evident once the document has been printed. An easy oversight by many but very useful and worthwhile implementing.
Step 1 – Create/Open Document
Create a new document or open an existing document
Step 2 – Open Editor
Open the header & footer editor
Double click at the ‘top’ of the page to edit the header and/or double click the ‘bottom’ of the page to edit the footer.
Select ‘Insert’ from the menu options. Locate the ‘Header & Footer’ box. Click either the ‘header’ or ‘footer’ depending on user requirement.
The header and footer automatically repeats onto new pages.
Step 3 – Text Edit
Type text into the footer or header. After finishing double click on the page below the header area, above the footer area or click the red close box located on the toolbar.
Step 4 – Page Numbering
Page numbering can be implemented in either the header or footer with a variety of styling options.
- Access the ‘Header & Footer’ Editor via either method from Step 2.
- Select ‘Page Number’ from the toolbar. Choose from the options where the numbering will be placed within the document.
Choose the desired styling option from the drop down list.
The pages now have a header and footer implemented throughout the document
