Page Setup Dialog: Header/Footer

Use the Headers and Footers section of the Page Setup dialog to control the content and the appearance of your headers and footers. Here, you can also turn on or off the printing and print-previewing of both headers and footers.

Layouts

The headers will appear at the top of each printed page prior to the actual contents and footers will appear at the bottom of each printed page after the actual contents. In the horizontal direction, there are three choices of positions and alignments for the headers and footers:

  • Left-aligned on the left-hand side of each printed page
  • Right-aligned on the right-hand side
  • Centered.

Literals

Use the text entries for the respective alignments and positions to specify arbitrary text to be displayed as headers and footers.

Pre-defined values

Because common conventions and consistency enable increased productivity, DeltaWalker allows selecting the most widely-used headers and footers from a drop-down menu invoked by clicking on the arrow next to the text entries for the respective alignments and positions. The following table lists these pre-defined values and describes what will actually get printed for them:

Advanced tags

Because the pre-defined values can only be used by themselves and cannot be used to construct arbitrary headers and footers, DeltaWalker associates the pre-defined values listed above with tags that can be used as parts of arbitrary text values for headers and footers. The advanced tags will be replaced in the provided text with their values according to the table given bellow:
