Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up hitting the Tab key a few times and that presumably moved the cursor to the OK button even though I was unable to ever actually see that button. Bottom line, it worked.

Hi Don,

You might try to adjust your screen resolution to help display those large dialogs. You can also try using the keyboard combination Alt + o to select the OK button in the Header/Footer dialog.

I am able to get to the Header and Footer template and create the template I want. However, I am unable to apply the template to my document because I am unable to get to the OK button at the bottom of the template. The OK button is just off the bottom of my screen and I simply cannot figure out how to get to it. The template does not fit completely on my screen and I cannot get it to scroll down for me to get toi the OK button. Any ideas?
