Thanks so much for having restarted development on this wonderful program! I look forward to working with CSS and certainly will pursuade my boss to buy a commercial license

Version 1.8.24 added support for multiple header and footer images yet I can't find instructions in the documentation on how to specify the different filenames or how to choose the location or order.
