Default FIrst page footers

I have written a document with a different front page footer so that the
numbering of pages doesn't begin until the second page.

What is strange is that the footer on the first page appears much higher
than those on subsequent pages.

Can anyone tell me how to alter the first page footer?

I'm guessing that the page set up for the footers on the first page (first
section?) is different frmo the page set up for other sections. Check out
the margins and layout tabs to see if they are consistent.

.

Word 2003 (you didn't specify which version) Help returns this:
Specify how to start or restart page numbering
Show All
Hide All
If you haven't done so already, insert a section break
(section break: A mark you insert to show the end of a
section. A section break stores the section formatting
elements, such as the margins, page orientation, headers
and footers, and sequence of page numbers.) where you want
to start page numbering.
How?

Click where you want to insert a section break.
On the Insert menu, click Break.
Under Section break types, click the option that describes
where you want the new section (section: A portion of a
document in which you set certain page formatting options.
You create a new section when you want to change such
properties as line numbering, number of columns, or headers
and footers.) to begin.
Note If you have already inserted a page break (page
break: The point at which one page ends and another begins.
Microsoft Word inserts an "automatic" (or soft) page break
for you, or you can force a page break at a specific
location by inserting a "manual" (or hard) page break.) to
cause a chapter to start on a new page, delete the page
break and replace it with a section break that starts on a
new page.

Do any of the following:
Start page numbering with 1 after the first page

For example, you can omit page numbers for the document's
title page or introduction and then start page numbering
later in the document.

Click in the section (section: A portion of a document in
which you set certain page formatting options. You create a
new section when you want to change such properties as line
numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.) in
which you want to start page numbering.
On the View menu, click Header and Footer.
If you want to position the page numbers at the bottom of
the page, click Switch Between Header and Footer on the
Header and Footer toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and
options that you use to carry out commands. To display a
toolbar, click Customize on the Tools menu, and then click
the Toolbars tab.).
If a header or footer has been defined for a previous
section in the document, click Link to Previous on the
Header and Footer toolbar to break the connection between
the header or footer in the current section and the
previous section.
If there's already text in the header or footer that you
don't want, delete the text before inserting the page number.
On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
Click Format.
In the Start at box, enter 1.
Start page numbering with a number other than 1

For example, you can number pages without a break in
numbering between multiple documents by numbering the first
document 1 through 20 and the second document 21 through 40.

Click in the section (section: A portion of a document in
which you set certain page formatting options. You create a
new section when you want to change such properties as line
numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.) in
which you want to change the starting page number.
On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
Click Format.
In the Start at box, enter a number.
Restart page numbering with 1 for each chapter or section

For example, you can number the first chapter 1 through 5
and the second chapter 1 through 8. Or, number the table of
contents i through iv and the rest of the document 1
through 25.

Click in a section (section: A portion of a document in
which you set certain page formatting options. You create a
new section when you want to change such properties as line
numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.) or
select multiple sections in which you want to restart page
numbering.
On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
Click Format.
In the Start at box, enter 1.

Thanks for the reply.

The strange thing is that if I click on the first page of the document and
check Page Setup I get the same margins and footer settings as if I click
somewhere in the rest of the document. If I change the first page, the rest
also changes. This is even though I have 'Different first page' checked and
the section start set to new.

I am using Word 2002.

Thanks

Thanks - sorry I did not state I am using Word 2002.

I do not have any problems with the numbering - that's fine.

It's just that the footer on the front page (where I have deliberately
omitted a page number) appears much higher on the page than the subsequent
pages.

This is clearly visible on the Print Preview screen.

I would guess that some copying and pasting went on here. Word is very bad
about adding empty paragraphs in headers and footers when you do that.
Display nonprinting characters (by pressing Ctrl+* or clicking the Show/Hide
button on the Standard toolbar) and you will probably see more than one
paragraph mark (). Delete all but one, and your footer should be back to
normal size.

Thanks for the advice.

Although I didn't find a second paragraph mark in the footer I did notice
something odd about the size of the footer. Consequently I discovered that
somehow the spacing after the footer text was set to 30 pts. A quick visit
to Format, Paragraph, solved the problem!

Something else for me to remember for the future!

Sorry, yes, I should have mentioned that possibility as well (though it's
less probable). I'm guessing that some style other than Footer got applied
to the footer paragraph.
