Header or footer link to previous:

We can see that the option in the Header or footer link to previous is gray and unable to be checked. How can we set it?

This function can only be used for segmented or sectioned articles. 

We can click the Section Navigation Pane button in the Section tab. In the left navigation bar, we can see that the article has been sectioned by title. Detailed tutorial of Section can be studied in the right column. At this time, both the odd and even page headers of the document are the same.

Now, suppose we want to set the header of even pages in Section 5 separately. What should we do? Double-click the header of this section to enter the Header/Footer dialog box again.  We can see that the headers and footers of even and odd pages in the Header or footer link to previous are linked to those in the previous section. So the full text will be changed if any header or footer is revised.

Uncheck Even header link to previous , and click OK so that we can adjust the even page headers of this section separately. Other options are the same.
