Hi Aayadi, 

From the given screenshot, we suspect that trial version of Syncfusion assemblies are used to generate/manipulate the Word document at your side. So, the header problem occurs at your end. To remove this trail watermark header, we suggest you to register our license key in your application. Please refer the below UG document to know about how to register the Syncfusion license key:

Hi Dilli babu,
I have the trial version, the problem is not in the message of the header,
but the problem is that I do not see the continuation of the header in the page of the second document.

I would like to vérify one thing,
I solve my problem of continuity of the header and footer but with version 15.4350.0.17.

section.HeadersFooters.LinkToPrevious = True is not working in the new version
you can test the sample given with version 15 and you will see the difference.  
please tell me the news after verification

Hello !

Same behavior with the last stable version (16.3460.0.36) and the sample provided.
I also tried to set LinkToPrevious=True on each section of the sub document to preserve the source header / footer configuration, but it doesn't have any effect (it worked very well on version 15). I would be really surprised that such a standard need is no longer supported.
What happened ? Is there another way to get the same behavior with the last version ? 

Best Regards,

Regarding LinkToPrevious = True is not working in the new version:

In the given sample (Updated on 12/7/2018), we haven’t used LinkToPrevious API. We have checked the LinkToPrevious API in both and our latest version, but it works perfectly at our end. For your reference, we have attached a sample application which used LinkToPrevious API and it can be downloaded from the below link:

Please find the output Word documents (generated from above sample) in the below link:
1. LinkToPrevious_15.4.0.17.docx - document generated in version
2. LinkToPrevious_16.4_beta.docx - document generated in beta version

Regarding you can test the sample given with version 15 and you will see the difference:

We have merged the Word documents using that sample application in both and our latest version ( Please find the output Word documents  (generated from sample Updated on 12/7/2018 ) in the below link:
Sample_15.4.0.17.docx – document generated in version.
2. Sample_16.4_beta.docx – document generated in beta version.

Could you please provide us the below things from your end :
1. Our latest available version is v16.4.0.40 beta, could you please confirm the latest version used at your end.
2. Modified sample of above along with complete code snippet (“LinkToPrevious API used at your side”).
3. Output Word document generated in both and in the latest version at your side.

This will be more helpful to analyze further on the reported problem and will provide you the prompt solution at the earliest.
