Add a Simple Header to Your Document

The header is the section of the Vocabulary Worksheet Factory 6 document that appears in the top margin. The header often contains information like page number, date or document name. When set as visible, the header appears on each page your document, though there is an option to have the header start on either the first or second page of the document. This video demonstrates how to create a simple header for a one page worksheet; and in this demonstration, the header is used in place of the more elaborate title group.

Add a Title Group

A title group is a great design element to add to the top of your one page worksheet, or to use on the first page of your multi-page document. A header appears on every page of your multi-page document, while the title group appears on the page where it is added.
