Damn annoying, isn’t it?!
The problem occurs because text in the Header and/or Footer is tied to the Page
Style. Therefore, if you want different text on one page cf others, then you need a different style to be in force on that page cf the others. Fiddly, but necessary.
The overview looks like this:-
- Create new page style, based on old page style
- Insert a Manual Page Break, selecting the new style.
…and here it is step-by-step:-
F11 (Styles & Formatting) Click on
Page Styles, then
New Style From Selection; choose a suitable name, select the current Page style & press
You now have a brand-new page style that is identical in (almost) all respects to the style in the current page.
4. Position the cursor at the beginning of the page where you need the header/footer text to change
Manual Break... select
Page break click
Style dropdown & select the newly-created style & press
You will now find that you can put new text in the header and/or footer & lo! it will only appear in the new style pages & not the old (phew, wipe brow with relief).
Please select this answer as correct (tick) so that I can finally get a little more karma. Thanks!
