Open the PDF file to examine the default placement of headers and footers:
- By default, headers are not placed on the first page, with the subsequent pages alternating between top-left corner and top-right corner to denote left-hand and right-hand pages.
- By default, footers are not used.
Change the headers and footers
From the menu, select File ▶ Printing Settings ▶ Headers and Footers to open up an interactive interface to change the headers and footers:
For the left-hand pages, add a centered footer that contains the file name and choose to display headers on the first page:
For the right-hand pages, move the header to the top-left corner and add a centered footer that contains the file name:
The headers and footers on both the right-hand pages and left-hand pages should now match.
