How to set up an APA paper in Pages


Pages disappear just like that! – I have seen some of the webhosts but #Ipage is worst amoungst all of them! Most of the time my admin dashboard disappearand I will to manually upoad them, they even change the way how it looks. When tech support is contacted via chat or call, all you will hear is “We are facing technical difficulties at this momenet with our systems and our tools are down, please get back to us in 20 minutes”! DO NOT BUY FROM THEM! Mohsin, chicago, usa

    my running head was too long on the cover page so i had to do this
    Create a text box in the body-> cut and paste from footer to text box-> drop the text box into footer-> done.
