How do I make a logo appear on the top of every page of my document?


Follow these steps:

  1. Open a new word processing document (or open the document that needs the logo added)
  2. From the pull down menus, choose Insert > Header > Default.
  3. Click so that the cursor is inside the new header block.
  4. From the pull down menus, choose Insert > Picture > From File.
  5. Navigate to the desired logo, then click Open.


If the graphic does not appear on every page, there are two possible problems. The page style in use could have the wrong header settings. To check the settings:

  • From the pull down menus, choose Format > Page.
  • Select the Header tab.
  • Check to see that the box next to Same content left/right is selected. If it is not, logos will appear only on odd or even pages, but not both.


If the graphic appears on one or more pages, then stops appearing, the cause is likely to be a different page style that is applied on the page where the logo ceases to appear. Look below the document, just to the right of where the page number information appears. The name that appears is the page style name. If the style name is different, the document has been broken into sections. To change this:

  • Place your text cursor into the page that has the wrong style
  • From the pull down menus, choose Format > Styles and Formatting.
  • Click on the Page style icon (fourth one from the left).
  • Double-click on the desired Page style name (the one that properly displays your header/logo). You may close the Styles and Formatting window now, if desired.
