Best Practices: Working with the Footer

The Course Outline Template has a standard footer that contains the name of the department, identifying information for the course, dates, and page numbers. Some hints about using this footer (as shown in this video):

  • When working with the outline, you'll notice that the footer is "greyed out". Double click on the footer to begin editing it. When you do, you'll notice that a new toolbar appears, and the main part of your document is "greyed out". When you have finished editing the footer, click on the "close" button on this new toolbar that appeared, and you'll be back editing your main document.
  • The footer uses Word's automatic page numbering. There is no need for you to update the part that says "Page 1 of 2" -- both parts of that numbering will update automatically based on the actual length of your document.
