Specifying a Presentation Header and Footer

You can specify a presentation header or footer only for embedded applications or configurations. You cannot specify a header or footer for pop-up resources or for Web documents.

To specify a presentation header or footer
  1. Create or open a presentation.

  2. In the Design View, if you have not selected a header or footer, a thin bar labeled Double-click Here to Edit Header Details will lie across the top edge of the image, and another thin bar labeled Double-click Here to Edit Footer Details will lie across the bottom edge of the image. Double-click the thin bar labeled Double-Click Here to Edit Header Details or Double-Click Here to Edit Footer Details.

    -or-

    If a header or footer is currently selected, double-click it.

    The Edit Header or Edit Footer dialog box appears.

  3. To use an external header or footer file, choose Select External Header/Footer.

    -or-

    To create a header or footer by selecting a color, typing the text, or selecting the image to display, choose Design New Header/Footer.

Note The following procedures apply to both headers and footers (the process is identical). However, for clarity, only headers are referenced.
To select an external header
  1. From the Select Header drop-down list box, choose any available external header.

    After it has been added to the project, any HTML page can be used as an external header. If None is the only available option, no external headers have been added to the project.

  2. To add an external header, select the Add button.

    The Add Header and Footer dialog box appears.

  3. Select the Browse button adjacent to the Files list box and navigate to the desired file.

    As you select a file, it is added to the Files list. Any files that the selected file references, such as JavaScript, cascading style sheets, images, and so on, are listed in the Referenced Files list.

  4. To add a referenced file to the Referenced Files list box, select the Browse button adjacent to the Referenced Files list box and navigate to the desired file.

    As you select a file, it is added to the Referenced Files list.

    Note To remove a file from either list box, select the file and choose the Remove button. You may be prompted to confirm the removal of that file.
  5. Select OK to save your changes and close the Add Header and Footer dialog box.

    All of the files in the Files and Referenced Files list boxes will be published to the MCS server when you select OK. Once published, files cannot not be removed. Entries added to the Files list box will be available in the Select Header drop-down text box.

  6. Select OK to save your changes and close the Edit Header dialog box.

    The chosen header will display across the top edge of the image.

To design a new header
  1. Use the available controls for Alignment, Color, Text Properties, and Graphic Properties to create your own unique header.

    Most controls are standard. Align determines the position of text in the header; Select opens the Choose a Color dialog box.

  2. Choose OK to save your changes and close the Edit Header dialog box.

    The newly-designed header will display across the top edge of the image.

Note Since the path to the file is not retained when the file is published to Management & Control Services (MCS), each filename must be unique.
