Using headers and footers in a presentation is even more important than in a book. Because presentations can be copied, pasted, and spread, you want your copyrighted or confidential information to travel with your slide pages.
A header is the top margin of each page, and a footer is the bottom margin of each page. Headers and footers are useful for including material that you want to appear on every page of a document such as your name, the title of the document, or page numbers.
The header is a section of the document that appears in the top margin, while the footer is a section of the document that appears in the bottom margin. Headers and footers generally contain information such as the page number, date, and document name.
