Layout Parts (Prof. Mary Brown)

C) folios – the page number. In most instances this is at the bottom of the page below or outside the text area.

D) header – the area at the top of the page, outside the text area. A running header is a header that is repeated across many pages

E) footer – the area at the bottom of the page, outside the text area. A running footer is a footer that is repeated across many pages.

F) gutter – the gutter separates the columns and rows from each other. It is also the area where two facing pages meet.

G) active corner –  the upper left corner of any field in a grid system. This is where the top of the text is aligned.
