Re: different headers in Word

Quentin Christensen

Hi Giles,

In the header and footer design toolbar is an option to "Link to previous" which you can uncheck if you want different headers and footers in each section:

1.  Press ALT+J, then H to open the design ribbon
2.  Press K to unlink this header or footer from the previous section's.

I'll double check whether that is mentioned in the material, and if not, I'll add it in!

Hi all,

I have the Microsoft Word with NVDA document and have read the section on headers. I have followed the keystrokes and added a page break and section break and a blank header ...

What I could not find any info on was how to unlink a header in one section from the header in the previous section so it can be different.

I'm trying to submit a piece of coursework for my screenwriting module that has a cover sheet, a section of character profiles and a section with the plot treatment.

Does anybody know how I can put a heading in section 2 that is for Character Profiles, and one in section 3 that says Treatment?

I have a workaround - a single header that says Character Profiles and Treatment, with a level 1 heading for Character Profiles and another level 1 heading for Treatment so it's not an urgent request but I'd like to know for future use :)
