Page headers in Word 2010

August 8, 2019 at 16:39:43
Specs: several
The .docx file I'm editing was written by one person and edited
by two other people before me. It has headers set to hold a little
decoration at the top of a page where a chapter starts or the like.
When I double-click on one of those pages in Word 2010, the header
space appears at the top of every page. On the pages that actually
have a header, everything on the page moves down a bit. When I
unselect the headers, that all moves back up again.

I'm trying to determine exactly how far from the top margin those
little decorations should be. Moving up and down like that when I
select them is confusing. Can anyone tell me what is going on when
they move up and down?

I am no expert but I believe an answer would be that word has to process your content, giving you more room to edit your header correctly when selecting it. After deselecting the header, word puts everything back into place.

A possible idea would be to look at the PRINT PREVIEW after making an edit.
Editing the margins until you have your desired look.

Hope this helps!

In word 2011 there is publishing view option; which may be of help. It's in the drop down list under View.

Don't know if it exists in Word 2010...
