MSWord - Best way to align headers and footers
Posted on 2007-03-26
MS Word 2002 SP3
The word documents I typically have headers and footers as follows:
Header - two logos, one aligned to left edge and one aligned to right edge
Footer - date,"Confidential",Page X of Y left, centre and right aligned respectively.
The alignment is done using a single tab with a centre/right alignment and a custom tab stop position.
The issue is this - if I switch the page layout from portrait to landscape the alignment of the headers is no longer correct. I then need to break the header/footer linkage between the headers on this page and previous/subsequent pages and reset the tab stop positions.
If I have a doc that switches from portrait to landscape a couple of times this becomes a real pain.
So my question is - is there a better way of aligning the items in the header/foot so that they will automatically change if the page is switched to landscape? A 2 or 3 column, single row table?
