It is common for a user to have different page headers or footers for some pages. This article should provide an information on how to achieve the objective.

5. Double click on the header of the new page that was created and you should see that the footer section of the first page is labeled as Section 1 and the header section of the second page is labeled as Section 2.

8. You can now go back to the Insert tab and change the design for your Section 2's header and footer template.
