How to Insert Header - Mac OS

Recommended Posts

Probably missing something obvious, but I can't figure out or find any guidance on inserting a simple header (last name/project name/page number) into a text document.  Help, please.

The Novel template includes a header that you can edit. To create your own, choose Layout, then Show Page Guides, from the View menu, so you can see the header box. Type the text you want, formatting it with the Inspector. To get the page number, go to the Edit Menu and choose Insert, then Page Number. If you'd like the header not to show on the first page, scroll down in the Inspector until you see Headers & Footers. Click on the box next to Different first page header. Then you can delete the header from the first page without it affecting the other pages. Similarly, if you want different left and right headers, you can click that option and make the appropriate changes.

Once the headers are set up the way you want them, you can go back to the View menu, choose Layout again, then Hide Page Guides. The header will remain visible, but the box surrounding it will disappear.

The same instructions apply to footers, except that you use the box at the bottom of the page and click on the footer boxes in the Inspector if needed.

Best, Marguerite
