Using Microsfot Word 2013:

Is there a way of setting a different footer size on the last page of a document?

So far I have only found ways of having different footer contents, but nothing on different footer sizes.

EDIT It is important for the solution to be template-friendly, so that the user will not have to go through the same process for every document.

    page setup can be different at section level, so if your last page always have same / similar content, then adding a section break before it and changing footer might help. Jan 29, 2016 at 10:00

This is what I managed to do so far:

  1. Go to the last page.
  2. Select Page Layout > Page Setup.

    enter image description here

  3. Select the Layout tab, then select Apply to: This point forward.

    enter image description here

  4. Change the edge, select Section start: Continuous, and click OK.

This is only in part satisfying, because it requires some manual handling (i.e. it is not template-friendly).
