Headers and footers in 4D Write Pro

4D Write Pro is moving forward with 4D v16!

You can now insert headers and footers in your 4D Write Pro documents but also retrieve any existing headers and footers when opening an existing .4w7 document from the 4D Write plugin.

You can define document sections and add headers or footers for all or independently per section. You can have different headers/footers for the right and left page, or for the first page of the section. Of course, headers and footers can be styled as the rest of the document (font, color, margin, padding, borders…) and can contain images as well.

You want to add the page number or the time in your footer? It’s now possible with new specific 4D variables. For instance, for the page number just add the $wp_pageNumber variable and it’s done!

The following information are available as specific 4D variables:

  • Date & time,
  • Document title, author or subject
  • Page number, page total.


We invite you to take a look at the following video if you want to see more about headers & footers management in 4D Write Pro:
