05 Mar Set a unique header or footer for your title page in Google Docs
Set a unique header or footer for your title page in Google Docs: One of the latest releases from Google Docs, you can now set a unique header or footer for your title page, so that you can have different content on your front page. Here we show you how.
To get started, open up your document and head to the ‘Insert’ tab. Scroll down to Header (or Footer) and select.
When the Header bar appears, a new option will appear to select ‘Different first page header/footer’. If you tick this box, you will be able to insert a different (or no) header to your front page, than to the rest of your document.
You will see here that the first page has a header, and the second page does not.
You can also open up the Header/Footer tab and scroll straight to your next page, so that you can add a Header or Footer for the rest of your document. You can see on the image below that the Header added to the second page is repeated on the third page, and so on throughout the rest of the Google Doc.
You can also now arrange for page numbers to start on the second page, so if you are including a title page, your numbering can start from the next page on. To do this, head back to Insert, and scroll down to Page Numbers. When you select this option, a fly out menu will appear, with options displayed as graphics of how you want your page numbers to start.
We opted for the bottom right option, so that our numbering would start on the second page and would be in the bottom right hand corner. Below, you can see a final image which shows what your document could look like if you utilise all these tips.
