Configure headers and footers for different sections of a document
Put the one page in a separate section. This will allow you to change the header to whatever you want. Choose where you want to search below Search Search the Community. When I type the header, it appears on every page with the “same as previous” seeming to be automatic. How can I either turn this off or create the new header on the one page? Thanks for your help.

I have the same question Report abuse. Details required :. Cancel Submit. Stefan Blom MVP. Link to Previous will only link to a previous like sections. If you’re using different headers and footers such as different first page or different odd and even pages, they can’t be linked together because they’re all separate. If you’re using sections, such as defining chapters in a document, you may want different info in different sections. By disabling Link to Previous , you can have the first page of chapter one numbered as , and as for the first page of chapter three.
To disable Link to Previous , follow these steps:. In the first header of each new section, deselect Link to Previous. If Link to Previous is dimmed, check to make sure a section break was created. Format each section the way you’d like. You can use Field codes to put information such as Author’s name, total pages, or section number.
