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 no header or footer is currently selected, a thin bar will lie across the top edge of the image labeled Double-click Here to Edit Header Details, and another thin bar will lie across the bottom edge of the image labeled Double-click Here to Edit Footer Details. When you double-click on these bars, the Edit Header or Edit Footer dialog box appears. If any header or footer is currently selected, then double-clicking on the existing header or footer will open the Edit Header or Edit Footer dialog box.
    Note At this point, the process for creating a header and the process for creating a footer are identical. For the purpose of clarity, the remainder of this procedure will pertain to headers.
  3. Choose Select External Header or Design New Header.

    Select External Header and Design New Header offer different options. For details of each, see below.

To select an external header
  1. From the Select Header drop-down list box, choose any available external header.

    Any HTML page can be used as an external header after it has been added to the project. 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. Two list boxes are presented: Files and Referenced Files, each with a Browse button and a Remove button.

  3. To add an external header to the Files list box, select the Browse button and navigate to the desired file.

    As you select a file, it will be added to the Files list. Any files that the selected file references, such as JavaScript, cascading style sheets, images, etc, will be listed in the Referenced Files list box.

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

    As you select a file, it will be added to the Referenced Files list box.

  5. To remove a file from either list box, choose the file and select the Remove button. You may be prompted to confirm the removal of that file.

  6. Select OK to save your changes or Cancel to undo them and close the Add Header and Footer dialog box.

    All 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.

  7. Select OK to save your changes or Cancel to undo them and close the Edit Header dialog box.

    The chosen header will appear 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, and Select opens the Choose a Color dialog box.

  2. Select OK to save your changes or Cancel to undo them and close the Edit Header dialog box.

    The newly-designed header will appear 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.
