Word headers

Q: Word headers

I'm working with a lengthy Word document and have struck a problem that I can't seem to fix. It is necessary that the header be (1) same font as body text, (2) aligned at upper right, and follow the format: author/title/page number.

Everything works fine until the page number reaches 100, then the first digit piles up on the / and I can't find a way to move the number over a space.

I hope somebody out there has dealt successfully with this problem and can help me out!

I am using Word 2003 and I have created a template containing a header/footer combination with my company letterhead information. This was working fine but the problem I now have is that when I open a new document by loading the template the header and footer are not shown. I must switch into them (using View/Header and Footer)
and they then appear. After that they stay visible. Apparently I have accidentally changed something.

My question is whether anyone knows how to have the header and footer visible by default when I open a new document using the template.

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.

To Discontinue a Header or Footer, go to Insert Header/Footer enable the header or footer that you want to change and click discontinue. You can also remove a header or footer by removing its associated code from the Reveal Codes Windo... Read more

Can anyone advise how to exit from a header when it has been completed? Previous versions of Word Perfect had an exit bar which when pressed, saved the header and returned you to the main body of the document. WP12 does not have this feature but there must be some way of doing it.
Also: The guide lines on WP12 are so faint they might as well be absent, Is there any way of making them properly visible?

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.

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.

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

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.

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

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.

Thank you so much, in advance, for any help you might provide.

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.​

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!

I'm building my first computer. I've replaced parts before but I've confused about a few things.

First: I bought a Phanteks Enthroo Pro case and it had a USB 3.0 connector inside to attach to the motherboard. According to my mobo's manual this connection only supplies power to 2 usb ports but I have 4 USB 3.0 ports total. Is this normal? Am I missing something?

Second: My case also came with a connector that goes from it's pwm hub to the cpu header. The cable has cpu on it and the case manual says to plug it into the header. So, I have one other four pin on my mobo and it's a chassis fan connector. So since my cpu is a 4 pin I plugged it into the chassis connector and I've noticed that my computer definitely boots a lot faster than if I switch those cables. Is this normal? Will this cause any problems if I keep it configured this way?

A:CPU and USB 3.0 Headers

Your case front panel has 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 2 x USB 2.0 ports. The USB 3.0 front panel cable is blue and connects the the blue header on the mobo....it's a 19 pin cable. Then your 2 USB 2.0 front panel ports are standard usb case cables and a plug in to the USB header ports at the bottom of the mobo...usually lower right corner. Consult your mobo manual.

I am editing a book and was wondering if it is possible to copy all the chapters into one Word Doc (Office 10) and get the chapter number and title to be different for each chapter. So far I can get the page #s to be right, but when I edit the header on any page it changes the header on every page. I would like to select a page range to format individual headers for the chapters.

I hope this makes sense.

A:Headers - different Chapters

Yep, makes perfect sense. I was straggling with the same thing once.
Solution is the following (OFFICE 2010, 2007).

At the end of each chapter:
Menu: PAGE LAYOUT - BREAKS - SECTIONS BREAKS (choose the type of breaks that fits your design)
This will divide document in logical sections and each section can be formatted differently.

Than insert headings in Section 1 (for now they will be same all over again), and click to edit the Header of Section 2 and unclick "Link to Previous" in the new appeared menu "Header & Footer Tools".
Repeat for every chapter. Voil?

Hi, first let me state I love Firefox. It works on my computer. However, I have learned that Yahoo Messenger and my internet banking are directly linked to IE
- which is not working.
When I try to load a page in IE - I see the address bar with the address in it - for any page I load - but there is a blank white page on the screen and nothing else - no matter how long I wait.
I have a Dell laptop - only one year old - and am using Windows XP - and the latest Firefox version. What have I tried? its a question I think of asking what more I haven't tried: disc cleanup - PC tools spyware program, PC tools registry cleaner. optimization, dumping the cache - in both IE and Firefox. I get no help from Dell - they just tell me to dump everything on my compyuter and start over. Microsoft wants 60 bucks - which I don't have - they are for rich people.
