Headers (Sideroom)

What you need to know first: Headers

Code Used: [svrhsM:M]

Keystroke: (None at present)

What does it do?

Controls the amount of space left on either side of the running Header.

Where would it be used?

To provide more space to fit longer Headers on the page. Note that the current default is 8 cells on either side. This is to allow space for page numbers. However in short documents, space for page numbering may not be a problem.

Usage in DBT:

[svrhs5:5][hds]My very long Heading[hde]

will allow for a lengthier Header without wrapping to a second line.

Let us explain!

The [svrhs5:5] code leaves 5 spaces either side of the Heading, thus leaving room for page numbering of up to 999 or #III

Consequently as the default is 8 spaces either side, we can gain additional space for running Headers by using this code.

You should also note that the values of M and N MUST be equal.
