Question OpenOfficeWriter page set-up help

Hello everyone. I'm a big-time newbie, (Been using RH9 for 2 weeks) and I've got a question about OpenOffice 1.0 Writer:

Adjusting left and right margin sizes is easy enough, (simply slide tabs on the "ruler" left or right) but how can I change the header and footer sizes? That is, say I want to start typing .5" or .25" from the top of the page, instead of the standard 1". How can I do this?

In MS-Word, you could go to File, Page Set-up, and you could make your margins, header, and footer as large or as small as you want....But I cant for the life of me figure out how to change header/footer sizes in Open Office Writer.

Sorry to bother about this, I've looked through help files with no avail.

"I want to start typing .5" or .25" from the top of the page"

Click on:


Turn on Headers and Footers

Then set the header and footer margins in centimeters.
