I want to

Version: Microsoft Word 2016

Here you can see, that my headline 9 (and all other headlines, too) have an image as part of the headline and the headline is also displayed in the page header.

Everything works as I want it except one thing: The headline is displayed without the image in the page header.

How can I have the image displayed in the page header?

    I’m voting to close this question because it's not about writing, but is asking for help with software. May 19, 2021 at 18:25

As per Microsoft, you will need to add the image manually to the header for that page:

Go to Insert > Header or Footer > Blank (or a simple template).
Double-click [Type here] in the header or footer area.
Select Pictures or Online Pictures and then select your picture.
Select Close Header and Footer or press Esc to exit.
