How can I set header/footer to not repeat the same thing on all pages (or every 2nd page)?
I just want to use the space for header & footer but have something different written in it on every page.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I'd be surprised if you can do that. It would kind of defeat the concept of header and footer.

Well... I want to use the space w/o having to format paragraph and text on every page individually, or worry that it will be pushed down/up if I modify the document body, but with different content.
I imagine a radio button with "replicate on every page" ; "replicate on every 2nd page" ; "do not replicate" wouldn't have been that hard to program.

It may be easy to program, but the whole point about headers and footers is that they're meant for repeating text. You can use a frame and anchor that to the top of the page, but you'll have to insert them manually or perhaps you can do it with a macro. You can ask for that in the macros forum.
