Re: [libreoffice-users] Logic of headers (and footers) or my lack of it!


Hi,

The header is attached to the page style you are using. For a given
page style, the header will be the same. I think you are looking for a
function similat to MS-WORD where you can link consecutive headers and
footers to have them "copied" from one section to the other, when pages
are separated with section breaks. LO does not operate quite like that:
LO provides page styles that contain the complete definition of what
your page should look like, along with header and footer. So, for a
given page style, the header will be the same when it is applied to a
page, what ever the page is.

So, to have the same header on pages 1-5, use Page Style 1
To have a different header on page 6, use Page Style 2
To have the same header on pages 7-10 as on pages 1-5, apply Page Style
1 to those pages
Etc.

To quickly see the page style, look in the middle of the status bar at
the bottom of the screen. You can right-click to set the page style for
the current page (actually from the last manual page break to the next
one). If you want to insert a page break and jump on a new style, then
go to Insert -> Other Breaks > Manual Break and on the dialog, select
page break and set the name of the style you want from the drop-down.

To create a new style, go Style -> Manage Styles and when the thing
opens on the right, go to page styles and create what you need (right
click on a style and then New...)

I hope this helps.

Rémy.
