Why Do Pages Headers Go Away on a Two Page Document When I select No Header for Page One

MacBook Pro 15 Retina, Mid 2014 Chassis, Yosemite 10.10
In the PAGES application.  I am writing a simple business letter I copied from a prior letter.  The letter is two pages long.  I add a header in the second page and it appears on the first page as well.  I correct the problem, and unselect the box that indicates I want the same header on all pages.  The header goes away on page one and on page two.
I cannot access a header for page two.  It is as gone as gone can be. 
I assume there is at least some amount of QA on this stuff, or do the customers do all of that?

Hello Peter,
Thanks for the reply.
I want to make sure I understand.
So I want to write a simple business letter, say to you.  All standard settings, profile for a business letter.
I write the first page, and I happen to go one paragraph into the second page.  At the upper right hand corner of the second page I "mouse over" the header, select the right side box, and enter To Peter, Page Two.  Then I navigate to Document Inspector, under headers and footers, I select "Hide on First Page of Section."  But that is not right?  Because it doesn't solve my problem?
Just to make sure I understand, even though I am in the second page of the section, selecting the option will make the page headers go away for page one and page two?  Forgive me I appreciate your help and am not blaming you.  Apple expects me to not only go through the search to find this setting as it does not default, but Apple also wants me to create a second section for the second page, and then enter the header, then navigate to Documents Inspector and then select "Hide on First Page of Section?"
By the time I go through all of that, then save and print the two business pages, I then create an envelope in a new Pages document.  Give it a name, enter your address, and then print, and save the envelope.
Thanks again Peter.
Does anyone else think that seems like a lot of extra work to get a two page, simple business letter, into the post?

  • On Pages, let's say you have two similar documents, but you need to compare the two to see the differences.  Is there a way to do that?

    On Pages, let's say you have two similar documents. Two versions of the same document, but not merged in Cloud and saved as two separate files. B ut you need to compare the two to see the differences, some things on one, but not in the other.  In Word, they would merge the two and differences would be highlighted in red.  Is there a way to do something like that?

    Not actually in Pages, but there is third party software that purports to do this, google around.

  • Why do I get white lines surrounding PSD or Tiff transparencies when exported as a PDF for print ?

    Why do I get white lines surrounding PSD or Tiff transparencies when exported as a PDF for print - Indesign Version 9.2?
    I recently upgraded creative suite - now I am having issues with white lines surrounding any tiffs or PSDs when exporting for print.
    I initially thought it was an acrobat viewer problem, but it seems to be effecting print. Please let me know if anyone knows the answer to this problem. thanks!

    Thanks Bob, to date I have simply used the High Quality Print default, which is actually Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3) - I have never had issues before - until now when I upgraded my software..

  • Adding page headers and footers to Numbers 3.0 document

    I have not found any way to add page headers or footers to a Numbers 3.0 spreadsheet document.  Searching online help file did not yield solution.  Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi Ruzicka,
    Page headers and footers, alas, are not supported in Numbers 3.0.  According to this support document they will be introduced to Numbers 3 sometime over the next six months.
    Meanwhile, I understand you can paste tables into Pages and print from there.

  • How do I prevent Pages from changing earlier parts of a document when I am in an 8 page newsletter. Going back to check something and items are jumbled up!

    The Amazon iWork '09 is a DVD in a boxed set.
    Downloading is transferring something from the Internet.
    I think you are talking about not having a DVD drive?
    To install the DVD version, either get an external USB DVD drive, they are cheap on eBAy or borrow another computer and drag the iWork Installer onto a USB Flash Drive and install from that.

  • When I select a bookmark, the page opens on the left instead of in the main window?

    Most bookmarked pages replace the page being displayed. But one of them keeps popping up on the left in a window which can only be expanded to about a third of the width. I need it to open in the main window rather than in the left hand column. Perhaps I should delete the bookmark for this page and try setting it up again so it will behave "normally"?
    Thanks for your help!

    Opening in the Sidebar is the default action for bookmarks that are created via a "Bookmark this Page" link or button on a website. Make sure you use the many "Bookmark this Page" methods that are in Firefox instead.
    Right-click that bookmark and select '''Properties''', then un-check the preference for '''Load this bookmark in the sidebar''', and then click Save.

  • Why does a box that says "uninstal set" keep popping up when i go to a new page, refresh the page, or ever open up the browser ever i upgraded to the new firefox?

    I upgraded to the newer version of firefox, and ever since then every time i go to a new page, refresh the page, or open it the interned a box pops up and says "uninstal set" and won't let me continue until i click "ok" why is this happening, and how can i fix it?

    go to Tools, add-ons, then only disable java 6.0.22 ONLY, then you have to click on restart. That solved my problem.

  • Header for Pages

    I need to insert different titles in the header after a couple of pages, how do I need to do it thanks

    Hi Wroclaw,
    Headers apply to sections.
    You can specify that the first page of a section is different from the rest of the pages in that section, but the more general solution, which would apply in your case, where you want to change the ehader "after a couple of pages" is to insert a section break at the end of the page before the change.
    On the first change, you will then need to open the Layout Inspector, click the Section button and:
    Decide whether page numbers should continue or restart (buttons beside top arrow).
    Uncheck the checkbox "Use Previous Headers and Footers.
    The settings should 'stick' for subsequest section breaks.
    Edit the first header after each section break.

  • When setting up my igoogle page, I cannot get the themes to display and when I select one, it won't show up on the igoogle page so can you assist me?

    I have used IE and Chome and both I get my igoogle page with the theme I have selected. I use to get Firefox with my theme on it. Then it changed and I could not. I contacted you, I went per instructions and deleted cookies, cache etc. and followed directions. Something I did worked. Now it is gone again. I followed some other question answers and put setup for Firefox 4.0.1 and then deleted Mozilla and then re-installed. That did not work. Now I am reading about Avast Webrep and all these other brainy people's answers which worked for them but I don't even know where to find these and I have not Firefox button or ability to go to extensions. I am so tired of this that I went back, downloaded IE 9 and Google Chrome. I got the theme on both again, even though I had completely uninstalled them as I was going to be a Mozilla person. Well now I just don't know and it has happened twice and I don't know how I fixed it to begin with.

    I suggest you to upgrade Firefox to version 7 and post back to us

    That message usually indicates that Apple Mobile Device Support hasn't installed correctly.
    Let's try a standalone Apple Mobile Device Support install. It still might not install, but fingers crossed any error messages will give us a better idea of the underlying cause of why it's not installing under normal conditions.
    Download and save a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe) installer file to your hard drive:
    Download and install the free trial version of WinRAR:
    Right-click the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe), and select "Extract to iTunesSetup" (or "Extract to iTunes64Setup"). WinRAR will expand the contents of the file into a folder called "iTunesSetup" (or "iTunes64Setup").
    Go into the folder and doubleclick the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi (or AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi) to do a standalone AMDS install.
    (If it offers you the choice to remove or repair, choose "Remove", and if the uninstall goes through successfully, see if you can reinstall by doubleclicking the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi again.)
    Does it install (or uninstall and then reinstall) properly for you?
    If instead you get an error message during the install (or uninstall), let us know what it says. (Precise text, please.)

    Is the script installed and enabled? On the Add-ons page, you should be able to view the script and its options.
    orange Firefox button ''or'' classic Tools menu > Add-ons > Userscripts category
    Is Greasemonkey running? It's a little to easy to disable by clicking the monkey icon (which causes it to have a faded appearance).
    For each script hosted on userscripts.org, when you are on the page with the description, you will notice a Discussions tab. You usually can read posts about new bugs and workarounds for the script there if the above is not helpful.
