Hello,

Is there anyway to place the footer (or header) outside the page margins?

Basicly i want all body text, tables, images etc. to have a right margin of 3.8 cm, but the footer should only be 1 cm from the right end of paper.


Thanks,

Dennis

The most convenient approach will be to apply a negative indent for the paragraph styles in use in headers and footers. Indeed, in the Paragraph style dialog, Indent & spacing tab, you can specify a negative value for Indent - Before text.

Thanks...

Tried a negative margin for the footer, but that didn't work... negative indent worked... GREAT!

In the same fashion, how do you place the footer further down on the page, like 1cm before the bottom?
Thanks,

Regis

Change the bottom page margin to 1cm. To get greater spacing between your normal text and this footer use the Spacing setting in the Footer dialog.
