I can't figure out how to format columns in my header. Under "format" you have a choice: Header or Columns. Every time I go to "columns" it applies that to my page but NOT my header. I don't want columns on the page only in the header. I wish three columns in my header. LOGO in column-1 aligned left; name address etc centered in the center column (column-2) and motto/blurb in the third column aligned right so I can create a letterhead. Any ideas anybody??

Insert a table in your header with as many columns you need. Then you style the cells to fit your design. Here's an example of what can be done:

You don't use columns in a header. For letterhead, you should use a table. Activate your header, click in the editing area, and insert a 3-column table, either from the menubar, or the table icon. You'll get something like this:

header

Then you need to format it to your liking, of course, but that's how you achieve what you're after -- since letterhead typically has more information in that area than most "normal" pages.


For the sake of completeness: in most cases, for e.g. a page of an article, you would use correctly formatted tabs.

  • put e.g. author name aligned left (as normal),
  • put a center-stop tab centre-tab in the middle of the line for your e.g. short title,
  • and a right-stop tab right-tab for e.g. page number.

Note: the Header and Footer paragraph styles already have tabstops defined, all you have to do is press the Tab key twice.
