Header and footer Profiles allow you to save custom header and footer settings as templates that can be used again later to add a header and footer to documents. There is also an option available to "Show on Menu" and when this is set for the profile it will be put under Document > Header & Footer so that the profile can be run in just two clicks from the document menu.
Note: You do not need to create or save a header and footer configuration before adding a header and footer to a document. To add a header and footer to a document without saving settings just go to Document > Header and Footer > Add and choose the settings to use and click Apply to run the header and footer settings without saving a profile.
There are 2 ways to apply an existing header and footer profile:
Open the document that you would like to add a header and footer to. Open the header and footer dialog from Document > Header & Footer > Add. Choose the header and footer profile from the drop down list in the combo box, click on the Apply button at the bottom of the dialog.
Open the document that you would like to add a header and footer to. Under the Document > Header & Footer menu, there is a list of all the header and footer profiles that you have previously created.
Note: Only the ones for which you chose the Show on Menu option will appear on this list. Click on the header and footer profile in the list you'd like to run and it will begin immediately using the settings saved in the header and footer profile.
