Header and Footer Information (New Layout/Report assistant)

In this panel of the New Layout/Report assistant, you can specify the text that you want to appear in the header and footer of your report. You can choose text to appear left-aligned, right-aligned, and centered in both the header and the footer.

Notes 

FileMaker Pro left-aligns text you add in the left positions, center-aligns text you add in the center positions, and right-aligns text you add in the right positions.

If you choose to include the layout name in the header or footer part, FileMaker Pro uses the name you entered in the first panel of the assistant. If you change the layout name later, that change is not reflected in the header or footer.

You can place one graphic (logo) in the header and one in the footer. The maximum height of a logo is one-quarter of the current page height; the maximum width is the width of the current page.

FileMaker Pro applies the appropriate header or footer part style to any merge fields that you create in the Header and Footer Information panel. See Creating and working with styles in layouts.
