header and footers


S

Scott Tabor

I am trying to put chapter titles in my document. What I mean is I want to
put Chapter 1 in the header and then when chapter 2 comes along. How do I
change the header to show Chapter 2 on every page until Chapter 3 comes
along. I know this is probably an easy answer but I can't figure it out.
Microsoft help is NO HELP.

Use a Styleref field to reproduce the content of the style applied to the
Chapter heading in the body of the document.

In the header, insert a STYLEREF field and apply the style to which you
refer in that field to the text that you want to appear in the header, which
in your case will probably be the Heading 1 style.

Assuming that each chapter starts on a new page, the easiest way to do this
is to put a section break (not a page break) between each of the chapters,
then modify the headers for each section.

Also, if your document is to be printed two-sided, you will need to go to
File / Page Setup / Layout and, under "Headers and Footers," select
"Different first page" and click OK. This means that each chapter will have
two headers (one header should be positioned on the left side of the page and
the other header should be positioned on the right side of the page -- make
your footers consistent with the headers).

Even if each chapter is in a separate section, a StyleRef field is very
useful to save you the trouble of unlinking the headers between sections and
typing new content. I do use separate sections for chapters (with both
"Different first page" and "Different odd and even" enabled).

If your chapter title is too long for your running head, is there a
way to get Word to shorten it intelligently? (Since it claims to be
able to check grammar, it maybe ought to be able to do that.) If not,
it seems like you're stuck with replacing the STYLEREF field with a
typed short title.

An interesting approach. Too bad there's no way to get around the non-
contiguous limitation.
