Changing Page Layout

The page layout of your document - its working title, how the pages are numbered, and the running header that appears on each page - is set up for you by StyleEase when you create a new document. You can customize the appearance of your document by modifying these layout characteristics.

Updating Your Page Layout

To change the layout of your pages, click Update Page Layout in the StyleEase menu, or click either Numbering or Headers in the Page Layout section of the StyleEase ribbon tab. Then set options and values in the Page Headers and Numbering screen shown below. The screen allows you to specify three different forms for your document's title:

  • The Paper Title is the full title of your document, as displayed on the title page.
  • The Running head is the abbreviated title shown at the top of each page.
  • The Title Page running head is the abbreviated title shown at the top of the title page if you have selected the paper document type. It only applies to papers (not term papers, theses, or dissertations).

Changing Page Numbering

The StyleEase Page Headers and Numbering screen also allows you to specify separate page numbering rules for different sections of your document. The default settings match the typical settings for standard documents in the standard style you are using, but some institutions and have their own page numbering standards.

Each section's page numbers can be set to:

  • Not display
  • Display in the upper right corner of the page
  • Display in the bottom center of the page

Some of the sections have additional page numbering options:

Pages Description Additional Options
Title Page The title page of your document The page number can be displayed using Roman or Arabic numerals.

This page can optionally include a running header.

Front Matter The set of pages that follow the title page and precede the first page of the body of the document The page number can be displayed using Roman or Arabic numerals.

This page can optionally include a running header.

Front Page of Each Section The first page of a chapter or appendix in a multichapter document If Restart numbering at 1 is selected, StyleEase sets the page number of the first page of the first chapter to 1. If this option is not selected, the number of the first page of the first chapter continues the previous numbering.
Body of document The body of your document  

IMPORTANT: You must use the StyleEase Page Headers and Numbering screen to make all changes in titles, running headers, and page numbering. If you manually make changes directly in your document, Word will not correctly update your numbering and special lists.
