Adjust margins in Word

    Hello,

    I am trying to set up a relative simple document in Word.

    The first page contains a header on a masterpage.
    If there is only one page in the document the footer should also be filled.
    If the text doesn't fit the first page, it should continue on the second page and the footer moves along with it.

    So far, so good, but the mayor problem I have is with the margins.
    Without a section break the margins of the second page are the same on the first page, but there I start below the header, which is far too low for the second page.

    I understood that I needed a section break and a seperate masterpage for the second page, but this only seems to work when I keep the section break in the document, meaning that I always have 2 pages, even if the text should fit one ;-(

    How can I solve this?

    Thanks!

    Are you saying that the footer should be on the last page of the document,
    only?

    If you select "Different first page" you can enter header content only on
    the first page. You can then decrease the header height and let the content
    push down the text in the main body of the first page.
