Is there a way to globally add a heading to each page? I've got some large doc's that don't have any heading tags in them.

Thanks.

Try Format>Page>Header, and see if that helps.

That adds a header to a single page, I want to globally add a header to every page.

You need to add a header to each Page Style (Stylist > 4th icon from left) you use in your document (a page style could apply to all pages in your doc).

These two topics cover related issues using page styles which may help?:

Actually, it DOES add it globally. I just tried on a 220 page document that had no headers. I opened the document, inserted a header, and voilą! It was present on all pages, not simply the one I inserted it on.

Hi maxqnz,

I assumed corbymorris had the First Page style (or another) applied to his/her 1st page, which could explain the behaviour.

BFN Smile,

Ah, thanks for that. I knew that you were right to recommend using Page Styles, but I was also fairly sure I hadn't sold a pup. Very Happy
