Add and remove sections in Pages on iPad
A word processing document can have multiple sections, each of which can have different page numbering, headers, footers or background objects (such as a watermark). Some templates have predetermined sections you can add to or delete.
To see a document’s sections, tap a page thumbnail in Page Thumbnails view, then tap the thumbnail again. A background colour appears behind all the page thumbnails that belong to the section.
