I am trying to create a letterhead template in Word 2010 and the template needs two things:
- A header that displays only on the first page.
- A .8 margin-top for all pages except the first.
I can accomplish one or the other just fine, but doing both creates a problem.
I created a unique first page header by clicking the
Different First Page option in the
Header & Footer Tools section and this gave me the banner on page 1 and blank headers on all new pages.
However, when I try to adjust the
top-margin for pages after page 1, I run into issues. What I did was go to page 2, open
Page Layout, open the
Page Setup flyout, set
margin-top to .8, set
Apply To: as
This Point Forward and clicked
Apply. Except the moment the margin is adjusted, the headers for every page become banners.
The issue is likely rooted in the fact that even though my non-first page headers are blank, they are still there. Is there any way to ONLY have a header on the cover page? The headers on the subsequent pages seem to be disrupting the normal content flow and the top margin.
