How to add a cover page to Word 2016 for Mac

Cover Page word 2016 Mac

Finish off your report with a Cover Page

You have written a large brilliant report and you need a cover page to finish it off. Word helpfully comes with an option to add a cover page. There is a selection of cover pages built in which you can reach via the Insert Ribbon.

Here is how

  1. Click on the Insert Ribbon
  2. Chose the Cover Page you wish to use

You will see a range of ready to use Cover Pages. If you are using your own Theme and have changed the colours in the colour scheme, the colours of the Cover Page will use your theme. If you use a new document without a design, they will use the standard Microsoft Word colours.

Simply complete the fields with the information such as Title, Subtitle, Company name date etc.

Modify the cover page

Once you have the new cover page in place, you can change its colours and add or remove elements to make fit the report

Remove Cover Page

If you decide that you no longer need a cover page in this document, simply click on Remove Current Cover Page from the Insert Cover Page dialogue.

Can I create my own cover page?

Yes, you can. However, in Word 2016 on Mac you cannot add Cover Pages to the gallery as you can in Windows. If you want to have a specific cover page to use, then you need to create a template with the cover page as the first page of the document. Then you can start from that template whenever you want to use the cover page.

How will you use this?

Will you be adding cover pages to your reports?
