PAGES wordprocessing delete header and footer

Post by Ed Grier » Wed May 07, 2014 2:26 pm

I wish to learn how to delete the header and footer areas in PAGES (Apple word-processing),
OR have a new document format that does not have areas for headers and footers.
I have learned how to have smaller side margins.
Now I wish to have smaller margins at the top and bottom of the page.

You didn't say what version of Pages you are using, but in the most current version (v5.2) both margin and header/footer info is set in the Document sidebar (first screenshot)

In order to eliminate a header/footer, just uncheck the checkbox.

In previous versions, you had to select the Inspector and then use the Document tab. (second screenshot)

Hope that helps.
