Word 2007: Headers & Footers

Word 2007: Headers & Footers

When you think of inserting things like page numbers, you probably automatically go to Headers and Footers. Text or graphics that appear in the Header & Footer areas of a document will print on specified pages in the document relative to your section breaks.

Using the Header & Footer Design Contextual Tab

As soon as you insert your first Header or Footer, Word 2007 enables the Header & Footer Design Contextual Tab.

The Header &  Footer group is the first one on the Header & Footer Design   Contextual Tab and contains commands for inserting a header, a footer and a   page number.

The Insert group offers a wealth of insert   options including the Date & Time, Pictures and ClipArt. You’ll also   notice a command for QuickParts, which are elements common to many documents.

The Navigation  group is where you go to quickly switch between the Header and Footer or to   jump from section to section. This group also contains the command for   linking one header or footer to the header or footer that is listed before.

The Options  group allows you to specify through a series of checkboxes whether each   section should have a different header and footer for the first page and   whether a section should have a different header and footer for odd and even   pages. This is particularly helpful when laying out a book.

The Position  group allows you to set the distance for the Header and Footer from the edge   of the paper.

Such a big button for such a small function. The Close group allows you to quickly switch   back to Print Layout view and closes the Header & Footer Design   Contextual Tab.













 



 

Inserting Headers & Footers

You can insert pre-designed headers or footers in your document and easily change the header and footer designs. Or you can create your own header or footer with a company logo and custom look, and save the new header or footer to the gallery.
