Demo: Headers and footers made simple

See how you can add headers and footers, customize them, and use different headers and footers on different pages of your document.

It's easier than ever to customize your Word 2007 documents with unique headers and footers. You don't need to be a designer — with a few clicks you can create a designer look while you insert an additional layer of information in multipage documents. Choose from a gallery of designs, and change the theme to suit your needs.

These demos show you how headers and footers can make your work look more professional and help readers keep their bearings. Remember, people don't necessarily read a report or paper from page 1 — they skip ahead to the parts that interest them and even extract and photocopy sections. When you set Word to automatically add elements like page numbers, section titles, date, and author name, you ensure that each page bears the essential information that situates it within the whole of your document. Take the demos for a spin and take your documents to a whole new level.
