Lesson 18. Page Numbers, Headers, and Fo... > Adding or Editing a Header or Footer

Adding or Editing a Header or Footer

To add a header or footer to your document, or to edit an existing header or footer, follow these steps:

  1. If your document is divided into sections, move the cursor to any location in the section where you want the header or footer placed.

  2. Select View, Header and Footer. Word switches to Page Layout view and displays the current page's header enclosed in a nonprinting dashed line (see Figure 18.2). Regular document text is dimmed, and the Header and Footer toolbar is displayed. On the toolbar, click the Switch button to switch between the current page's header and footer.

  3. Enter the header or footer text and formatting using the normal Word editing techniques. Use the Alignment buttons on the Formatting toolbar to control the placement of items in the header/footer.

  4. Use the other toolbar buttons, which are described in Table 18.1, to perform the indicated actions.

  5. When finished, click the Close button on the Header and Footer toolbar to return to the document.
