What is a footer?

Using dictionaries and reference books to search for the necessary information, in the header or at the bottom of the page we can see the combinations of letters with which the search words and combinations of words begin. This helps to quickly find us the necessary information. The same upper inscriptions can be created in electronic text editors, for example, in Word. Such inscriptions are called footers. Consider what a footer is and what it is used for.

A footer is a line of text above a page of text in a magazine, book, or other print format. If the text is organized in two columns, then the footer can be placed above each column.

As for the electronic format, there is often a choice: there will be a footer or a header. And you can use one and the other. It is organized using a special option in the program. Footers are designed and numbered in a certain way.

Footers can contain pagination, headings and subheadings.But more often the content of the footer is reference information for the pages. Such information performs a very practical function and is needed for orientation on the page.
