    I am using Word 2010. I created two double sided templates. the first with no colors in the H/Fs. The 2nd has colors in H/Fs.

    I took the first no color template and created the one with color. Now when I go to insert a section break at the end of the colorful template (4th section) the old no color footer pops in. It happens when inserting a page break or odd section break. When I insert an even section break I get the current odd footer (but the next page needs to be even).

    I tried deleting the old header and footer and replacing them with the correct ones. I also right clicked and selected "remove header/footer" but it didn't make any difference.

    Is there a way to clean out these old headers and footers? (I checked they are not in my building blocks for inserting h/fs either). This template will be distributed to multiple authors and it would be better to have nothing appear than some old header/footer design.​

    Try them on a different machine that never had the headers/footers in the first place (and not on the same network)

    Dealing with header and footers was the most frustrating thing in Word when I was still working as a writer. I'm interested to know why DaveBurnett thinks using a different computer is going to do anything toward solving your problem.

    I was wondering if it was including something from somewhere else on that machine.
    I was just trying to narrow things down.

    OK, I get that. Wasn't doubting your expertise; just curious.

    That's OK! No offence taken. I'm of the Sherlock Holmes School: "When all else has been eliminated........"
