Default Sections, footers and headers

How can you delete a header or footer from a section without removing it
from later sections ?

Default Sections, footers and headers

Before you can delete a certain header (or footer) you must (i) unlink it
from the corresponding header (footer) in the preceding section, *and* (ii)
you have to unlink the header (footer) of the following section as well.

Note that each section can have up to three different headers (and three
different footers), which is the case if you select "Different first page"
as well as "Different odd and even" in Page Setup. Each type of header
(footer) must be separately unlinked from its "neighbor" in the preceding
section, as stated above.

Suzanne,

Not sure if the web page you mentioned refers to a previous version of
Word, but the paragraph where it says:

"Whenever you do want to create a header or footer that is entirely
different from the one in the previous section, however, you need to unlink
the header and footer. You do this by clicking on the Same as Previous
button on the Header and Footer toolbar (to turn it off)."

In Word 2007, the Header & Footer Tools ribbon bar, shows "Link to
Previous" instead of "Same as Previous".

Took me a moment to translate what the instructions were referring to.

After disabling "Link to Previous", the footer in Section 2 is now
displaying correctly.

Thanks !

Actually, the terminology isn't consistent between versions. Word has
changed back and forth between "Link to Previous" and "Same as Previous." In
other words, it's a quite understandable omission in an otherwise excellent
article. :-)

The article was written for Word 2003 and earlier, but there's a special
section at the end for 2007/2010.
