With multi-page documents, you might want to provide certain information at the top or bottom of each page throughout the document. Headers or footers can provide the reader with important information and they tie your documents together visually.

Headers and footers are special frames. You can edit the text and data within the headers and footers just as you would any other text frame. What makes headers and footers different from most other frames in KWord is that they are automatically created at the top and bottom of each page.

Headers and footers are only available when using text oriented templates.

Using headers and footers

You can toggle headers and footers on and off independently at any time.

You can toggle the headers by selecting Format->Enable/Disable Document Headers from the menubar.

You can toggle the footers by selecting Format->Enable/Disable Document Footers from the menubar.

The footers will be added below the margins you set under page setup. The text within the main frames will be moved so the headers and/or footers do not overlap any text.

Since headers and footers are simply text frames that are placed on each page, you can use all of the tools and techniques you are familiar with to create your header and footer information.

For more information on options for headers and footers, see the section on Formatting the page.

For information on page numbers see the section on Page Numbering.

For information on formatting the frame, see the section on Setting the Properties for a Frame.

For an example of how to place the page numbers on the outside of even and odd pages, see the How do I? section.
