alternating headers/chapter titles...?

Headers will be the death of me!

 

I'm using Microsoft 2011 for Mac.

 

I can get an even-page-only header with my book title....perfect! Except it shows up on my "pre-pages", as in the TOC and Copyright page which I don't want. I want it to start on page 1 of the actual novel.

 

To add to my issues, I want odd pages to show (in the header) the chapter title, which obviously changes as the chapters change.

 

It seems this question is either unanswered on CS, refers to different Word versions, or says to Google it (which I did to no avail). So help is wanted!

Re: alternating headers/chapter titles...?

This question certainly has been dealt with often herein. I suggest going to YouTube and searching for tutorials. You would probably be wise to get in the habit of doing this, as you clearly need to learn quite a bit about the use of wordprocessing software, and coming to this forum with each and every question is not the best way to go about that.

Seriously?! A Google search on microsoft word headers returns 5,050,000 results, many of which provide exactly the information you need.

Did you see THIS how-to, at the very top of the first page of search results?

And THIS one, specifically the section "Create Different Headers and Footers for Different Sections of Your Document"?
