How can I add a header or a footer to my Surfer map?

To add a header and/or footer to your Surfer map:

  1. Click Layout | Display | Header or Layout | Display | Footer.
  2. In the Header & Footer dialog, in the Header and/or Footer section:
    1. Type your desired header text into the Text box or click the Text Editor button () to create text with more complicated formatting. 
    2. Choose a horizontal alignment option from the Alignment dropdown list.
  3. Click OK to add the header text to the top of the page and/or the footer text to the bottom of the page.
  4. If you would like to export your map with the header/footer:
    1. Click File | Options. 
    2. On the General page, check the box next to Include header/footer in export/print. 
    3. Click OK. 

 

If you already have a header or footer displaying, it will be remembered the next time you open the Header & Footer dialog. Additionally, Surfer will remember if the Include header/footer in export/print is toggled on.
