Q: Solved: Hiding Word Headers for Printing

At work, when we send out proposal documents (Word 2002 Office XP) we send them out in two different ways- as paper printouts and as pdfs. My boss is very particular about the company branding so when we send out paper versions they must be printed on letter-headed paper. When we send out pdfs we set up headers and footers that look like the letter-headed paper. Unfortunately this means that whenever we create a proposal we end up editing two documents, one with headers and footers, one without. This is time consuming and has led to differences between the versions in the past.

- Ideally, we would just edit the version with the header and footer, and then be able to hide them when printing onto paper- I can't find a button in Word to do this!
- I've tried to persuade the boss to just print the pdfs onto normal paper for the paper versions, bur apparently this isn't good enough
- I've tried inserting an image of the letter-headed paper as a watermark (which could easily be removed for printing to paper) but even I can see the result isn't good enough quality- it also isn't very flexible.

Has anyone got any bright ideas that could help? I've read on these forums about Master Documents but I don't really understand what they are- could they be the answer?

Thanks for your help

I planned to seek help from TSG about finding an easier way of getting into headers in the MSWord 2007. Word had changed rather drastically from the previous version and I found the new version unnecessarily complicated when it came to dealing with headers.

But before posting, I decided to look at the situation very carefully once more so I could describe the issue accurately. Lo, and behold, I discovered the existence of something called the "Quick Access Toolbar." Now maybe you knew all about that, if so, this post is not for you.

Right-click on an empty place on the top menu bar to the right of the menu items (Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc). When you do that, you will see a menu window appear that provides these options: "Customize Quick Access Toolbar," "Show Quick Access Toolbar Above (or below) the Ribbon," and "Minimize the Ribbon" (The Ribbon being the entire collection of menu icons and subdivisions).

In the Customization Window that appears, you can select items from the extensive list of items in the left column and move them to the "to be included" (my term) column on the right by means of a directional arrow betweem the columns in the middle. You can also remove things you don't want by selecting them in the right column and using the directional arrow between the columns to move them back into the "items from which to select" column on the left.

Note that you can change the order of how the s... Read more

I have a short document (14 pages) written in Word 2000. Starting about the middle of the document, and only for a couple of pages before it reverts back to normal, the header somehow goes from being 1/2-inch high to something like 5 inches high. This of course means the first line of text is in the middle of the page.

If I select the offending header and try to adjust its margin with the vertical ruler, the change won't stick - when I release the mouse button the header immediately reverts to its large size.

What would cause this? And how can I fix it??

I use Word 2002 and need a document with a header on page one, but not on page 2. As advised I use View>Header and Footer>, and then click Layout on the toolbar. As instructed I click Different first page. I've made a template with this header but documents created with this template still have the header on the second page.
I've also tried recreating the document template from scratch and replacing the original, but the same problem reappears.
I attached a zipped copy of this template.
I would warmly appreciate any suggestions.


A:Solved: Discontinue headers in Word

You may be neglecting one extra step. If you choose to have a different header on the first page only, you will need to set up the first page and then the other pages. You may need to go to page two, select Header and Footer and blank out the information for the remaining pages to create a blank header. Then your check in "Different First Page" will use the page one data on the first page only.

There's a good (but old) tutorial here.

A:Solved: Surpressing Headers in Word 2003?

Take a look in the Word 2003 Help files under "Insert headers and footers" It has a section with instructions on creating a different first page header or footer.

If your document is divided into sections, click in a section or select multiple sections you want to change. Click anywhere if your document is not divided into sections.

On the View menu, click Header and Footer.

On the Header and Footer toolbar, click Page Setup .

Click the Layout tab.

Select the Different first page check box, and then click OK.

If necessary, click Show Previous or Show Next on the Header and Footer toolbar to move into the First Page Header area or First Page Footer area.

Create the header or footer for the first page of the document or section.
If you don't want a header or footer on the first page, leave the header and footer areas blank.

To move to the header or footer for the rest of the document or section, click Show Next on the Header and Footer toolbar. Then create the header or footer you want.

A:Solved: Word 2007 Doe not Display Headers/Footers

Read other 13 answers

I have had trouble formatting Word 2003 documents so that the header is suppressed on the first page but the footer prints. It is probably some little thing that I am missing. I am a dyed-in-the-wool WordPerfect fan and use Word only as a last resort, so am not familiar with some of the fine points of the latter. To briefly summarize: I have gone to the View / Headers and Footers menu and entered the desired text for the header and the footer. Then I have gone to the Page Layout button and run into trouble there. If I click on First Page different, I suppress printing of both the header and the footer. I have tried choosing "From this point forward" and then entering header text on the second page rather than the first, but either both header and footer are blank on the first page, or if I unclick the box for First Page Different, then the header displays as well as the footer. I will appreciate any help.

A:Solved: Formatting Headers/Footers in Word 2003

Sounds like what you need is a section break. At the end of the first page, insert a section break - make sure you make it a page section break. This will allow you to have different headers for each section. On page 2 (which is now the first page of section 2), enter your header. On the header and footer toolbar, there is a "link to previous" button. It's selected by default, so you'll have to unselect it. The header might have automatically been put onto the first page; if so, go to page one and delete the header. As long as the "link to previous" button is not enabled, this should delete the header on only the first page, leaving you with the footer on all pages. Let us know if you need clarification on any of the steps since you're not used to using Word. Good luck!

A:Outlook 2003 Headers Not Printing

This was a solution found in one of the Microsoft forumsAfter some testing, I?ve discovered that if on the emails that don?t print the headers you first switch to landscape mode, they will print the headers correctly. To do this:

1. Click on File and choose Page Setup
2. Choose Memo Style
3. Select the radio button for Landscape
4. Click OK

This setting will be for this email only and only until you close it. The default setting will still be Portrait for other emails. This will at least let you print the missing header information on these random emails until Microsoft releases an official fix for it.

How are you getting out of the program? (exiting the screen.) This is what I found from Word Perfect 12's Help Menu:

In working with Headers or Footers note that they do not display in Draft Mode. The document must be open in Page or Two Page View.

To View a header or footer: Click view and than click one of the following: (Uncheck Draft Mode if checked)


-Two Page

To Switch the document view, click View and than either page or two page.

To Edit the text in a header or footer: (Must not be in draft mode)

Click Insert/Header and Footer

Enable one of the following options:

Header A
Header B
Footer A
Footer B

Click Edit

Make any changes to the text

Click File, Close

If the document is displayed in Page View or Two Pages View you can also edit the header or footer by clicking anywhere inside the header or footer.

I am using Word 2010. I created two double sided templates. the first with no colors in the H/Fs. The 2nd has colors in H/Fs.

I took the first no color template and created the one with color. Now when I go to insert a section break at the end of the colorful template (4th section) the old no color footer pops in. It happens when inserting a page break or odd section break. When I insert an even section break I get the current odd footer (but the next page needs to be even).

I tried deleting the old header and footer and replacing them with the correct ones. I also right clicked and selected "remove header/footer" but it didn't make any difference.

Is there a way to clean out these old headers and footers? (I checked they are not in my building blocks for inserting h/fs either). This template will be distributed to multiple authors and it would be better to have nothing appear than some old header/footer design.​

After banging my head against the wall and fighting with Visual Basic to create a template full of fancy bells and whistles for my client, I've come up against a probably simple, but amazingly annoying issue.

When I apply my template to a document, the headers and footers don't appear. I don't understand. (Yes, I click View --> Headers, Footers.) They're not there.

I go back to the template. They exist. I create a new document. They exist. I apply the template to a document with no headers/footers (or in some cases existing headers/footers) and nothing.

If it were just for me, I'd come up with a workaround. But I need to hand this template off to a client who needs to work with it. Cutting and pasting, etc, isn't going to do it.

Surely there is a way to make the headers and footers appear when applying to an EXISTING document.

A:Solved: Printing Booklet in Word using Duplexer

It depends upon your print driver. But you said, and it should NOT be "some pages are upside down." That sounds random, and it can't be random. The better statement would be that every other page is upside down.

On my duplex capable printer, when I go to print multiple pages, when I go to print, I must select the page print (such as ^P) command (you don't want to just one-click and print, you want to be able to) select the [Preferences] command (unless you have pre-set all of your printing to be so) and then, in the "Print on Both Sides" area, select either the
"Flip on Long Edge" OR the "Flip on Short Edge" command,
whichever works for you.

Try it.

1.Is it possible in Microsoft word, or other similar type of software, to print two pages horizontally, instead of one vertically, on one paper, if so, how ?
2.Is it possible to make it skip every two pages, without me inserting exact number of pages which I want to be printed, for example, I have document of 100 pages, I want to print on both sides, and every paper side 2 pages horizontally, side by side, instead of one vertically. Now, so i don't have to print one paper, than wait, insert the same paper back on the other side, and print it again, is it possible that printer prints pages 1,2 on first paper, then 5,6 on second, then 9,10 on third,etc etc, until it gets to the end, and when it has finished, I take all printed papers, put them back in the printer on the other side, and then set it to print pages 3,4 on first (other side of paper), then 7,8 on second paper, etc, etc, and at the end I get printed pages on both sides (1 paper 4 pages on 2 sides, 2 pages per side).

Normally I study materials using pdf files without printing them, but for some subjects like math, I like to print out the materials, and this method would save me a lot of paper, if it's possible.
