How to Add PDF Header and Footer

Home > PDF Editing Tips > Add PDF Header and Footer

The header and footer sections of most professional documents are normally meant to convey important and repetitive information. In many referencing systems, for instance, information about the author and subject of the content – such as the name of the author(s), title, and publication date – are often displayed in the header or the footer.

Headers and footers, therefore, are most significant for individuals who regularly write reports, journals, or other important documents. In the office, headers and footers can carry the company logo and/or slogan to give documents a more professional look. Students and researchers need to insert their names and document title to published work to make it easier for them to get published. In this article, I will tell you how to add PDF header and footer.

Part 1The Program for Adding PDF Headers and Footers

Wondershare PDFelement (PDFelement for Mac) combines over a dozen beautifully crafted features for editing PDF documents into one application, making it one of the most convenient PDF modification tools in the market. A single PDFelement installation enables you modify text, image and page on your document and convert PDF from or to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, images and other types of files.

You can organize pages in your PDF with header and footer, bates number and more. Another key feature of PDFelement is its OCR feature, which allows you to search and edit documents fresh from the scanner or documents sent via email. Additionally, you can add security features such as password protection, redaction, digital signatures, and watermarks to make your documents more secure.

Part 2How to Add Header and Footer to PDF

PDFelement provides a seamless process for inserting headers and footers into PDF documents. Before you can begin, download and install PDFelement if you haven’t already done so. Once you have installed the application, run through the following guide to add PDF header or PDF footer.

Step 1. Import PDF into PDFelement

Launch PDFelement. On Home window, click the "Open File" button at the bottom of the window to select a file from your computer.

Step 2. Add PDF Header Footer

Once the file has been uploaded, select "Edit" from the top menu bar and choose "Header & Footer" from the submenu. Select "New Header & Footer" to insert a new header or footer.

Tips: If you need to make changes, you can always go back to the "Header & Footer" option on the submenu bar, select "Update Header & Footer", and make the necessary changes. If you want to remove the header and footer altogether, select "Remove Header & Footer" to delete the content.

Step 3. Customize the Settings

On the "New Header & Footer" properties box, you can customize different aspects of your header and footer. You can customize the size, style, and color of the header and footer from this window. You can also change the position of the content on the header and footer and any accompanying macros. Additionally, you can select the pages you want the header and footer content to appear by clicking on "Page Range" just above the preview pane. Once you have inserted content for the header and footer, click "OK" to see the changes on your document.

Once your changes have been implemented, always remember to save your work. You can always come back to your document to perform a number of other editing functions, including compression, conversion, or text editing.
