How to Add a Header Bar to Pages in Apple


When you create a document on your Mac using Apple's Pages application, which is part of the iWork suite, you might want to have the same text or graphic appear on multiple pages, so you add a header. For example, you want the name of your newsletter to appear at the top of each page of the latest issue, or you want your company's logo, phone number and website address to appear on each page of a catalog. You can easily create a header in Pages.

  • Click the "Pages" icon from the Dock on your Mac to launch the application.

  • Click "File," then click "New" to create a new file. Click "File," then click "Open" if you want to open an existing Pages file, then click a folder on your Mac that has your Pages document, then click on the file to select it, and then click "Open."

  • Click "View" from the Pages toolbar at the top of the application window, and then click "Show Layout." A header bar appears at the top of the document.

  • Type text in the header bar, or copy and paste a graphic into the header bar.

  • Click the header bar at a point where you want page numbers to appear, then click "Insert" from the Pages menu, and then click "Page Number." Incremental page numbers appear in the header on every page of the document.
