Headers

Post by Ninurta » 2007-07-19 10:02:32

There is a problem with headers (mainly) in imported documents. The first page shows a header, the second not. There is no way to change this via the heaer palette.

There are a few ways a document can have a different first page header. Here would be the things to check:

1. In the Headers palette is the Different First Page option turned on for the first section?
2. If the Sections palette has the Use Facing Pages option enabled then odd/even pages will have different headers.
3. Does your document include a section break somewhere on the first page? If so, the second section may have the Different Headers option enabled.

In any case, if you feel that your document was imported improperly, please send us the original (before opening it in NWP) via the Help > Send Feedback menu. Thanks.

Hiya Martin

Is "Different First Page" supported by RTF?

I think it is on by default in MS Word -- or if not, it is the one option many Word users activate, in my experience.

So it is a command many .doc imports will present with.

You can do different first page per section in NWP.

Great, Martin. So here's hoping Word has implemented it in a way that Nisus' RTF can identify it.
