Edit Sections

Changes the properties of sections defined in your document. To insert a section, select text or click in your document, and then choose Insert - Section.

To access this command...

Choose Format - Sections

The Edit Sections dialogue box is similar to the Insert - Section dialogue box, and offers the following additional options:


Type the name of the section that you want to edit, or click a name in the Section list. If the cursor is currently in a section, the section name is displayed on the right side of the status bar at the bottom of the document window.

The current write protection status of a section is indicated by the lock symbol in front of the section name in the list. An open lock is unprotected and a closed lock is protected. Similarly, visible sections are indicated by a glasses symbol.


Opens the Options dialogue box, in which you can edit the column layout, background, footnote and endnote behaviour of the selected section. If the section is password-protected, you must enter the password first.


Removes the selected section from the document, and inserts the contents of the section into the document.
