An organized document should include features that allow you to easily find information.
This will also help others who are collaborating with you or viewing your work.
In this video, you will use headers and footers to add important information to every pageof your document. A “header” appears at the top of every page, while a “footer”appears at the bottom.
Page numbers are also important, especiallyif you have a longer document. You will add page numbers that automatically count up byone for each new page.
To begin, add a header to your document. Headersoften contain information about the document or author. This might include the name ofa group or company and the title or topic of the document. If you are collaborating,this makes information clear and recognizable to everyone in your group.
Choose a different header for the first page if you like. Or you can simply leave the firstpage without a header.
Next, add a footer. Adding a footer at thebottom of the page can provide important details as well, such as the date the document waslast updated.
The first page can also have a different footer if you choose.
Then, add page numbers. Page numbers identify how many pages are in the document. You canalso refer to a page number when collaborating to let your colleague, employer, or groupknow where to find something.
A page number can be placed in different areasof a page. You can also choose to start numbering pages on page 2. This might be useful if youplan on having a title page or a table of contents.
Adding all of these elements to your document can make the process of working in the documentmuch smoother. Now, it’s your turn:Add a header, Add a footer,And add page numbers.
