Question: I don't have Word/Office/Works on my computer. I am trying to write a book. I am going to do it in Word Pad for now. I'm going to make each chapter a separate Word Pad document. Does anyone know how many typed pages a Word Pad document can hold? Thanks!

essentially, infinite. It depends on your document size. I think the biggest wordpad can open is 1 mb. (1024 kilobytes in a megabyte, a page is about a kilobyte, standard text format.) However, as wordpad creates .txt files, with no formatting availiable, or spell check, etc, i would suggest buying word, which can open larger files and has way more features.

Hamlet Originally Answered: In Microsoft Word 2007 how do I get different headers on each of the first three pages of my document?
Make each of the first two pages separate sections and you can customize headers for them all. Here's how to make them sections: 1. Select the entire text you want to make a new section. 2. Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon. 3. Click the little arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group. 4. Set the Apply To listbox to "Selected Text". 5. Click OK. Now you'll have three sections that can have totally different characteristics. Hope that helps.

Yes, You need to insert section breaks and then define the sections as being unique. The header and footer are by section.

You can create WordPad documents that are as long as an average book chapter, but there's another solution: The link below will take you to download OpenOffice, a free, almost as good clone of Microsoft Office.

Edan Originally Answered: 4 pages typed = how many handwritten?
Depends on the size of your handwriting, etc. but it usually works out to 2 written pages per 1 typed page. So in your case, about 8 written pages.
