Steps for changing document fonts and styles depend on which Works module you are using. The steps for changing the format of headers and footers in the Word Processor, Spreadsheet, and Database modules are listed below.
NOTE: The style of headers and footers in any module is determined by the default font in the Word Processor module. For example, if you want your footer to be bold and italicized in the database (any view), you would set the default font in the Word Processor to have bold and italic formatting. The Spreadsheet and Database modules get the font from the row and column headings, but the style comes from the Word Processor default font.
Works 2.0 and 3.0In the Word Processor, there are two types of headers and footers:
Works 4.0, 4.5, and 4.5aIn Works 4.0, 4.5, and 4.5a, the header and footer paragraphs are always visible and can be formatted the same way you format normal text. To change the font, simply highlight the header or footer text and select the font and style that you want.
Spreadsheet and DatabaseThe process for changing the header and footer in the Spreadsheet and Database is the same in Works 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 4.5, and 4.5a.
In the Spreadsheet and Database module, the option to use header and footer paragraphs is disabled by design. You can obtain a similar result in the spreadsheet by using the first few rows of the spreadsheet as a header and using Freeze Titles option to freeze these first few rows.
In the Spreadsheet module and in list view of the Database module, the font used in the standard header and footer matches the font on the row and column headers.
In form view of the Database module, the font used in the standard header and footer matches the default font.
Refer to the Works for Windows "User's Guide" or your online help for information about setting the default font in Works.
You can have standard headers and footers that use these default fonts, or you can use the following procedure to obtain printed output of your spreadsheet and database data along with formatted header and footer paragraphs:
For more information about how to accomplish these tasks in Works 4.0, 4.5 and 4.5a, see your Works printed documentation or online help.
