  1. Open a new text document, choose View - Styles and Formatting, and then click the Page Styles icon.
  2. Click the New Style from Selection icon and select New Styles from Selection from the submenu.
  3. Type a name for the page in the Style name box, and then click OK.
  4. Double-click the name in the list to apply the style to the current page.
  5. Choose Insert - Header and Footer - Header, and choose the new page style from the list.
  6. Type the text that you want in the header. Position the cursor into the main text area outside of the header.
  7. Choose Insert - Manual Break.
  8. In the Type area, select Page break and then select “Default” from the Style box.
