Default Changing size of footer

The footers in my document are taking up half of the page. How do I make them smaller?

Default Changing footer size

Hello,

One possibility is that you have a footer which appears blank but in fact contains several Carriage Returns. You can check this by opening your document and selecting View > Headers and Footers. If you then select the Show / Hide all button, you shall be able to check if this is the situation. If so, then it is simply a matter of deleting unwanted CRs. Please see attached example.

Another possibility is to check the page layout.

Select View Header / Footer
Select File > Page Setup
Select the Layout tab
Under the Headers and Footers option look at the "From Edge:" settings. The default is 1.25 cm. If yours is different, change the settinga back to the default value.

Hopefully this should solve your problem.


Kind regards,

Zade :-)

To change the size of a header or footer:

Go to File
Page Setup
Layout

Under the Headers and Footers section change the distance from the edge (top/bottom).

Hope this helped.
