On some pages I have an image in the footer. I don't know how it got there and how to delete it. If I try to delete the footer my text goes all the way to the very bottom of the page. I want to have the same footer for every page. Please help me.

Here's a screenshot , the image (it has a capture) is in the footer and I can't move it , if I do,it replicated to all the pages:


I get this only on some of the pages. And if I go to Insert-> Footer I have here all kinds of footers. I have the option Insert-> Footer-> All but I don't think that's what I need.

  • Could you post a screenshot? Can you click on the image to select it? – Andrea Lazzarotto May 28 '16 at 14:36
  • I tried to do Insert->Footer->Default Style , this deselects the footer. After this I repeat the steps and it gets me to the first page and I can edit the default footer , but it doesn't replicate to all the other footers, they stay as before – Katrinna L May 28 '16 at 15:14
  • solved the different footer styles problem by setting Styles & Formating -> Page styles -> Default Style for every page that had a different style. Still can't find how to do this for the whole document at once – Katrinna L May 28 '16 at 17:13

You should be able to click in the open space to the left (or right) of the image in order to place the focus on the page footer. Now click on the image and press delete. This shouldn't affect the text in the body of the page. You should be able to edit both the text and the footer.

  • I tried this and the image is deleted, but how to set the same footer to all the pages? – Katrinna L May 28 '16 at 16:12
  • If you type something in the footer (e.g. Same footer), doesn't it replicate in all the other pages? This is what is supposed to happen. – CentaurusA May 29 '16 at 0:40
  • It replicates to the pages that have the "SameFooter" , in my document I somehow have several pages with "SameFooter", some with "SameOtherFooter" and some others. I couldn't find how to reset the same footer to all of them – Katrinna L May 29 '16 at 14:19
  • Go to Format - Page - Footer and check the box(es) labelled "Same content left/right" and "Same content on first page" to establish a consistent footer across all pages. – CentaurusA May 29 '16 at 16:22
