Insert Headers and Footers in an OpenOffice 4 Document on a MacBook Air
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to insert Headers and Footers into a document in OpenOffice 4 when using a Macbook Air.
The first thing you will need to do is open OpenOffice as we have already done.
We are going to create a document. Using Headers and Footers make the document more formal. If you wanted to create an essay, formal document, or story, anywhere you need to give a title and some information at the bottom of the page.
To create a Header, we can go to Insert and scroll down to Header, click on Header, then click on All.
That has created a space for us to create a Header.
This will be on the top of every page of the document.
With this Header, we can write some information, or we can go to Insert again and create a Field to insert the Date, Time, Page Number or Subject.
We will just insert the Date.
We can also make the Header bigger or smaller by changing the size of the text in the Header.
Next we want to create a Footer.
To do that, we are going to go to Insert, go down to Footer, and select All.
That will create a Footer where we can put information in, and if we want we can go to Field and select Page Number.
Now we can say that is Page 1 and we can move it to the middle, depending on where we stylistically want it to be.
If we wanted to create different sections, for example, this section would be the Introduction, and we want to move quickly onto the next page without having to press enter and go all the down to create it, we can just make a new page by going to Insert and selecting Manual Break.
Page break is selected so it's going to break the page in 2 allowing us to create and write on the second page so you don't have to waste time pressing enter to go all the way down.
Now we're going to make Chapter 1, and we still have our Header up top.
If we scroll down we also have the Footer at the bottom.
This is a way of creating a more formal, more official document.
It also gives it a good stylistic element and makes your work seem a lot more professional. This is how to insert Headers and Footers and also how to use Page Breaks in a document in OpenOffice 4 when using a Macbook Air.
