I have a footer on page 1 which I would like to see on page 2, 3, etc.  but the "link to previous" button is grayed out.

How can I remedy this?

is your footer options set to 'different first page'?  uncheck that option and they'll be the same for other pages.

I might be misunderstanding the  situation, but "link to previous" will not be meaningful for the first section, so will be greyed out by design.

You will have to navigate to later sections to see it enabled.
