Often when creating documents you will want to repeat a piece of text on each page you print out. Sometimes this means printing the title of the document on the top of each page, including the date a document was created on the bottom of each page, or printing the page number on each page individually so that they do not get accidentally placed out of order. OpenOffice.org makes creating such headers or footers a breeze. With a few simple clicks you will be able to include titles, dates, page numbers, or any other information in the headers or footers of all your documents.
