Default How do I change the author title spacing in header above paragraph?

Hi: I've used Word since 2003, but still don't know a whole lot about the ins and outs of it. My wife has completed a book and above the pages on her header appears her last name 'Boland' above the paragraph on the left hand side. Unfortunately the name doesn't appear on the first eight chapters, but the remaining chapters have her last name in the header. When I try to add 'Boland' to the header in the first chapter, after the first page, I can put Boland in but it is too close to the paragraph. On her pages after chapter 8 her name is spaced higher above the paragraph, and when I try to do it, her name is one line space above her paragraph. Can someone please help me with this? Thank you. Paul.

Have you tried simply copying & pasting the entire header paragraph (or even the entire header) containing 'Boland' from the header where it does appear and pasting it into the one where it doesn't?

Default I figured it out,thank you

Hi; When I tried to put the cursor in front of her name and press the back arrow, it would not go up at all, except to go to the previous page. What I did was put the cursor at the back of the word and hit the enter bar twice and that elevated the author name higher above the paragraph. Thank you for your help. Paul.

FWIW, you could achieve the same effect by increasing the 'space after' setting for the paragraph containing the author name.
