excluding header on first page of a word 2008 document
Here's why I needed a different first page header because there may be others that are in the same predicament. For APA format, the first page must have "Running head: Every subsequent page must only have the title. I knew how to do it in Word, but thought it was not possible in Pages.
I was saving as a doc and doing it in Word before I printed. Hope this helps others. Feb 8, I wanted to do the exact same things as the OP but I only wanted the text on the first page where it was oriented higher than the rest of the page. This worked perfectly!

I guess the learning curve is steeper than they lead me to believe when selling it to me. I will read the above discussion.
Thank you. I'm assuming this is the Inspector, shown next to Media. I tried inserting a section break and I tried inserting a page break, so that i could attempt to eliminate either one or both. If I send my document as is to my instructor, that second page is not going to be welcome.
Mac Word 2008: header ONLY on first page when using a template?
Any other suggestions? At this time, you have a header on every pages. Remove it completely. Starting from the very beginning of your document type what you wanted to be in the page1 header. After that, adjust the vertical position of the first line of the main text.

Bekins Bekins. At that point, any changes you make to the first page's header will not affect subsequent pages. They will have their own header, which you can't get rid of completely without affecting page 1 , but can be blank. I am creating a newsletter without the template and have created a header I only want on page one, but no matter what I do the header appears on all pages. I'm guessing that ellie12 did not so much create a header as fill in an existing one, and simply doesn't want that text appearing on subequent pages.
That being said, I did fail to notice that the document was a newsletter. Peggy suggested the same thing, but I think, like me, was assuming WP instead of PL, which has no body text. It's sufficient to simply select a section in the thumbnail Pages view to be able to adjust its configuration in the inspector. I hope that the OP will give a more precise description of what he wanted. As you understood, i read the question as: I think that it's the way Peggy understood which responded: But after all, maybe you are right.

Mac OS X Speciality level out of ten: I have been on a Mac for the last 18 years due to more than anything else Probably similar to other confused folks here I desperately want to retire MSWord and use Pages exclusively and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a simple letter stationary where I have my name at the top of the first page ONLY I have tried to to follow the instructions given in this thread but when I try to use either previous header and footer tip or the first page is different tip I don't get the desired result. I also find text boxes really hard to position in the way that I want them.
I have the sense that I am NOT an isolated incident. Could somebody step this out in a way a six year old could make sense of it? I am sure if you are a pro at using word processing the tips listed so far must be child's play. But not to me. Jerrold Green1 Jerrold Green1.
Apple TV Speciality level out of ten: Begin with a new Blank Word Processing Document, then: If any of the options above were unavailable, they were already activated. Now take some time and study what you see in your Pages document window. On the outside you have your Rulers that will show the location of margins and tabs.
Then there is a thin gray border indicating your table top. Next is a white rectangle which is your "paper". On your paper will be three outlines, for Header, Text Frame and Footer.
