Coordinating headers and footers and document sections
areas, double-click where you want to edit — even if you don’t see any text there. This
brings the header and footer areas to the surface, as shown in Figure 8.13. When you fi nish
working with the header or footer, click Close Header and Footer in the Close group of the
Header & Footer Tools Design tab.
FIGURE 8.13:
Header and Footer tabs clarify what and where headers and footers are. With headers and
footers open for editing, the document body text turns gray.
Headers and footers also display in Print Preview. There, however, because the view is
supposed to represent what you’fill see when the document is printed, the header and footer
areas aren’t gray and isolated. The same is true in Read Mode. Note that in Print Preview
and Read Mode, you cannot perform normal editing — neither to normal text nor to text in
headers and footers. In Read Mode view, however, you can insert comments. This chapter
assumes that you are working in Print Layout view so that all kinds of editing are possible.
If you don’t see what’s shown in the screen shots, then check your view setting.
Coordinating headers and footers and document sections
Figure 8.13 indicates the document section number in the header and footer tabs at the left
end of each area. Word documents can be single-section or multi-section. You might use
multiple sections for a variety of reasons, particularly in long documents. Some users place
each chapter of a document in a separate section, with additional sections being used for
front matter (tables of contents, tables of fi gures, foreword, and so on) and back matter
(index, glossary, and so on).
