Defining Different Headers and Footers

You can use different headers and footers on different pages in your document, so long as the pages use different page styles. LibreOffice provides several predefined page styles, such as \<emph\>First page\</emph\>, \<emph\>Left page\</emph\> and \<emph\>Right page\</emph\>, or you can create a custom page style.

You can also use the mirrored page layout if you want to add a header to a page style that has different inner and outer page margins. To apply this option to a page style, choose \<emph\>Format - Page\</emph\>, click the\<emph\> Page\</emph\> tab, and in the\<emph\> Layout settings\</emph\> area, choose\<emph\> Mirrored\</emph\> in the\<emph\> Page layout\</emph\> box.

For example, you can use page styles to define different headers for even and odd pages in a document.

  2. Choose View - Styles and click the Page Styles icon in the Styles sidebar deck.
