In this chapter, you will learn how to: • Insert headers and footers • Convert the document to Adobe PDF format—Commercial version only! • Create a poster The sections below do not pertain to some particular example and can be applied to any of your ACD/ChemSketch documents. 10.1 Inserting Headers and Footers Starting from version 8.0, you can insert headers and footers for all the pages in your document. You only have to define the text or picture to be inserted in one page and the rest of the pages will be provided with the same pattern. 1.
