Thread: the footer?

  1. #1

    Default the footer?

    If I start with a simple template, there is a long rectangle at the bottom that acts as a footer
    (eg when I slide it down the page, it auto lengthens the page)
    but if I make a new page, and add my own rectangle
    and slide IT down - it just slides off the bottom of the page
    and tried header and footer in the help - no luck
    so, the trick is .... ??

    The easiest thing to do is to modify the footer from the template.

    From scratch, right click on the footer object or group and select Auto Fit To Page.

    Press Help in the Auto Fit to Page menu for an explanation of the various features.

    seems simple
    tried as you said
    did nothing

    made rectangle
    rt click auto fit to page
    selected bottom middle
    saved
    still acts as before
    ie on-page preview stays exactly where I place it manually

    Place the rectangle at the bottom of the page and then alter the page height. The rectangle should follow the page.

    If you selected as Gary suggested the rectangle will stay relative to the bottom of the page. If you have it 2cm above the bottom of the page and alter the page height, the rectangle will remain 2 cm above the bottom.

    Move the rectangle to the bottom of the page. Set the position to Bottom & Centre. Now reduce or leghten the page. Your rectangle will move up or down the page as required. If you leave the rectangle 100px above the page bottom it will remain 100px above the page bottom if you shorten/lengthen the page.

    ok -- will test some more == I had already tried
    BELOW the end of page marker
    ABOVE the end of page marker
    1/2 over/under the end page marker

    silly me -- did not try (yet) in the correct place

    ok ==
    it works (sort of)
    I put the rectangle on the bottom - in place
    and rt click etc
    now as I move the bottom of page marker
    the footer box slides with it - nice
    BUT
    when I have a box from a template
    when I move the box - it drags the end of the page with it
    but not now
    * this is not a big deal - I can easily work around this
    I just want to know as many of the fine points of programming as can
    thanks!

    That's because the footer is set to Push. See second attachment here.
