Headers and Footers

To

Do this...

Edit the page header and footer text

In Page Mode, select the Edit | Edit Page Header/Footer menu option. A paragraph marker displays at the top and bottom of each page, and you can type in, format or delete the appropriate text.

If Page Mode is turned off, all page headers and footers are displayed in a block at the start of the document, with identifying labels. You can also edit the text here.

Each section in a document can have its own page header and footer.

Create the header and footer for the initial page of the document

In Page Mode, select the Edit | Edit Page Header/Footer menu option and then select the Edit | First Page Header/Footer | Create First Page Header or Create First Page Footer menu option. A paragraph marker displays at the top or bottom of the first page, and you can type in and format the appropriate text.

If Page Mode is turned off, all page headers and footers are listed in a block at the start of the document, with identifying labels. You can also edit the text here.

Delete the header and footer for the initial page of the document

Whilst you can delete the first page header or footer text by simple editing, you must specifically delete the 'first page' assignment in order to display the header and footer text of the next section on the first page.

In Page Mode, select the Edit | Edit Page Header/Footer menu option and then select the Edit | First Page Header/Footer | Delete First Page Header or Delete First Page Footer menu option. This removes the first page text and assignment, and displays the next-defined header and footer text.

Create a footnote

Move the cursor to the position at which to insert the footnote marker, and select the Insert | Footnote/Endnote | Footnote menu option. The Footnote Parameters dialog displays, on which you enter the footnote marker and footnote text, and select whether to make the marker a superscript.

Click on the OK button. The editor inserts the footnote marker at the current cursor location and, in Page Mode, displays the footnote text at the bottom of the page.

Edit footnote text

Select the Edit | Edit Footnote/Endnote | Edit Footnote Text menu option. The text of each footnote displays in the document text where its marker was inserted. Locate the text and make the required changes. In Page Mode, the modified footnote displays at the bottom of the page.

When you have finished editing footnote text, deselect the Edit | Edit Footnote/Endnote | Edit Footnote Text menu option. The footnote text is no longer shown in the document text.

Create an endnote

Move the cursor to the position at which to insert the endnote marker, and select the Insert | Footnote/Endnote | Endnote menu option. The Endnote Parameters dialog displays, on which you enter the endnote marker and endnote text, and select whether to make the marker a superscript.

Click on the OK button. The editor inserts the endnote marker at the current cursor location and, in Page Mode, displays the endnote text at the end of the section or document.

Edit endnote text

Select the Edit | Edit Footnote/Endnote | Edit Endnote Text menu option. The text of each endnote displays in the document text where its marker was inserted. Locate the text and make the required changes. In Page Mode, the modified endnote displays at the bottom of the page.

When you have finished editing endnote text, deselect the Edit | Edit Footnote/Endnote | Edit Endnote Text menu option. The endnote text is no longer shown in the document text.
