Chapter 6. Advanced Word Processing > Headers and Footers

6.1. Headers and Footers

A header or footer is a special strip that can show the page number—as well as your book title, chapter title, name, date, and other information—at the top or the bottom of every printed page in your document (or one section of it).

6.1.1. Creating Headers and Footers

Word treats the header and footer as a special box at the top or bottom of the page. To view these special text areas, choose View→Header and Footer; dotted lines appear around the header and footer areas of your document, and the Header and Footer toolbar appears, as shown in Figure 6-1. The rest of your document, meanwhile, fades to gray. (If you find even that faded representation of your body text distracting, hide it by clicking the Show/Hide Document Text icon on the Header and Footer toolbar.)
