Page Numbers

A baker's dozen of ideas

Here is a collection of tips about how to display information in Headers and Footers.

Field codes are demonstrated. Remember that the brackets {} must be inserted with Ctrl+F9, not directly from the key board.

Here's one suggestion:

Display the word "more" at the bottom of every page except the last page.

Insert an "if" field into the footer.

The field in this case will be a compound entity that consists of two fields nested within a third field.

{ IF { PAGE } = { NUMPAGES } "" "more" }
  1. Position cursor where you want the field.
  2. Press Ctrl+F9 to insert the field braces.
  3. Type the field expression as it appears below, using Ctrl+F9 and arrow keys as needed to keep text within the various braces as you type.
    { IF { PAGE } = { NUMPAGES } "" "more" }
  4. Select the entire expression.
  5. Right-click the selection and choose Toggle Field Codes.
    (or use Alt+F9)
