How Can I Remove the Header From Apple Pages?

By Sophie Southern

Apple's Pages, which is the word processor in the iWork software bundle for Mac OS X, gives you a wide variety of formatting options, including the ability to completely remove a header. Headers can be important for certain types of documents, as they display information at the top of each page. However, if you don't have particular use for a header it can take up extra space at the top of your document. You can easily remove headers from Pages documents through the "Inspector" panel.

Step 1

Locate the Pages document you want to open on your Mac and double-click to open. You can also access Pages through your "Applications" folder and open your document from within the application.

Step 2

Select "View" from the top menu bar in Pages, then select "Show Inspector." Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut "Command," "Option" and "I" to show the Inspector.

Step 3

Click the white computer paper icon on the left to access your document settings.

Step 4

Click the "Document" tab.

Step 5

Uncheck the box next to "Headers" to remove headers from your document. Select "File" from the top menu bar, then select "Save" to save your changes.
