I have a document with different sections in it. In the header of the pages, among all the common things, I also want to mention the section name. i.e.: some text in the headers is not going to be common. How can I achieve this? This is possiible in MS-Word by unlinking a particular header with the previous page header.

Thanks in advance,

-Nabil.

Creating different headers and footers in separate sections is done with Page Styles. More info here:

Using Page Styles is different to the way that MS Word unlinks headers and footers from various sections, but it is quite logical and easy to use once you get used to it.
