  • The Wolfram System saves these settings from the dialog with the notebook so it will be printed the same way in the future.
  • The text displayed in the dialog's fields is typically a Cell expression. You can use Cell Show Expression to see the expression corresponding to a cell in a notebook.
  • The following are some useful Cell expressions to use as headers or footers:
  • Cell[TextData[{CounterBox[ "Page"]}],"PageNumber"] defines a cell with the automatic numbering object using the cell style . The appropriate page number replaces and is incremented for each printed page.
  • Cell[TextData[{"FileName"}],"PageHeader"] inserts the value display object using the cell style . The notebook's file name, a string, replaces TextData[{"FileName"}]. This object can be replaced by an arbitrary string. Use the value None to use a blank entry in a text field of the header or footer.
