Different footer on first page?

This is probably a feature request as I could not find anything in the help or discussion forums.

Most of the documents I produce in Markdown/Marked end up having to be exported to PDF before distribution and that PDF has to be in the 'company standard' format.

I have managed to just about replicate the required format using CSS, but I have a need to have a different 'footer' on the first page than on the rest of the pages in the PDF document - is this currently possible?

Ability to have HTML in the footers would also be a great help, but I think that is already planned?

Thanks for a great application and all your efforts producing it.

    You can have what's called a "running header," which means you can add
    extra text in any header or footer for the first page only. You cannot
    currently have entirely different text.

    The running header is surrounded by %%(text). So a header or footer such

    %(First page text )%title

    Would produce "First page text title of document" on the first page

    Thanks, the running header is a very useful bit on information.

    In my case I do need to have a completely different footer on the first page though, so stick that on the bottom of the feature request list…….
