Autotext entries in the default Author-it Word template

February 18, 2008

The default AuthorIT.dot Word template comes with the default autotext entries for headers and footers listed in the table below; most of the other Author-it Word templates have similar autotext entries, though their names may be a little different.

I couldn’t find this information anywhere in the Author-it Help or in their Knowledge Center, so I figured that I should share what I documented recently. Hopefully this information will help someone!

AutoText item Affects this…
EvenFooter The footer displayed on an even page (pages 2, 4, 6, etc.). By default, it displays copyright information, is left-aligned, and has a top border.
FooterFirst The footer displayed on the title page of the Word document. By default, it contains a field for the date the documented was printed, is left-aligned, and has a top border.
HeaderChapterOdd The header displayed on the first page of a new chapter when it starts on an odd page (pages 1, 3, 5 etc.). By default, it contains the text in SuperHeading and Heading 1 (chapter heading) both of which are left-aligned, a page number on the right, and has a bottom border.
HeaderContentsEven The header displayed on an even page of the table of contents. By default, it contains the word ‘Contents’ and a page number, both of which are left-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderContentsOdd The header displayed on an odd page of the table of contents. By default, it contains the word ‘Contents’ and a page number, both of which are right-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderEmpty By default, this header has no content, is left-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderEven The header displayed on an even page. By default, it contains the document title and a page number, both of which are left-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderEvenL The header displayed on an even page in landscape orientation. By default, it contains the text in Heading 1 (chapter heading) and a page number, both of which are left-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderFirst The header displayed on the first page of a new section or chapter. By default, it contains a page number, is right-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderNormalEven The header displayed on an even page. By default, it contains the text in Heading 1 (chapter heading) and a page number, both of which are left-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderOdd The header displayed on an odd page. By default, it contains the text in Heading 1 (chapter heading) and a page number, both of which are right-aligned, and has a bottom border.
HeaderOddL The header displayed on an even page in landscape orientation. By default, it contains the document title and a page number, both of which are left-aligned, and has a bottom border.

  1. Thanks for putting this together, Rhonda. I have yet to set up my AIT > Word 2007 mapping, although it has been a to-do project for several months now. You see, a new template design came along in the middle of everything that is really quite different, so I want peace and quiet to think things through. The new design does not have all the styles I expect.. This list is really useful to me for that project. I will really try to get back to you with feedback, if I have anything to add. I am debating whether to push myself over the edge by upgrading to v5 at the same time! :-)


  2. Thanks Rhonda – documenting this has been on my list of things to do for ages. I will definitely find it useful. How about posting the file on the Author-it User Group?


  3. Thanks Rhonda – very helpful!
