How Can I Remove the Header From Apple Pages?

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.

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.

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.
