Hi Friends,
I have an embarrassing problem. I can write a 30 page document or a 230 page document, but no matter, I still need my Communications Director to fix my footers before going to print. I've tried everything I can think of including: maintaining consistent margins, using the link to previous function, and starting in a prepared template where the footers are perfect! What I end up with is missing footers, mis-numbered footers, migrating images (such as our logo in the footer), text overlapping the footer, etc. If you can dream it, my footers have mucked up in that way. I haven't found any meaningful advice online, and this can't continue. Please help!

I can tell you this, I think it may have to do with the way I bring content, both text and images, into my document, because I end up with dozens of sections in the format view. I can also tell you that I've been doing this work for a long time, and it's not until MS 2013 that I've had a problem.

Many thanks,
Jess Hogan
