Endorsements are the placing of additional header and footer information at the top and bottom of each page. Header and footers can contain text such as titles and page numbers. The default height of both the header and the footer is 12 points; this can be adjusted individually as needed.

Enable Endorsements

Enable this check box to use the endorsements feature.

Style

Use this drop down list to select the area for which you want to edit the endorsement text. Both the page header and the page footer are made up of three separate sections - a left section, a center section and a right section for a total of six areas in which to place text.

Text in the top left and bottom left section is always left justified, text in the top center and bottom center section is always centered and text in top right and bottom right sections is always right justified.

Units:

Determines the unit of measure used to enter any section width or height or font size information for the endorsement. Choose Points to enter the measurements in points, English to enter the measurements in inches or Metric to enter the units in centimeters.

Width:

The width of each section can be set individually to allow for text wrapping within each section. The default width for each section is the width of the page.

Height:

The height of each section can be set individually. The default height for each section is 12 points.

Text:

Use this text field to enter the data to display in each part of the header or footer. The text can be formatted using the formatting codes (see complete table below) to add page number information to your header or footer text, as well as to display the text in different fonts, font sizes, colors and other text attributes such as bold, italic and underline. The default font used is Arial, 12 points, Black.

Some common examples of header and footer strings are shown below.

Place the text "Page " and the current page number in the upper right corner of each page using the format string Page &P in the Page Header Right endorsement area. This endorsement will be in the default font of Arial 12 point, colored black.

Place the custom text "Internal Use Only - Confidential" at the bottom center of each page. Format the text so that it is in Verdana 14 point, colored red, and with only the words  "Internal Use Only" in bold text. For this, use the format string &KFF0000&'Verdana'&14&BInternal Use Only&B&'Arial' - Confidential in the Page Footer Center endorsement area.
