How to increase footer text distance from the separator line so that it looks like header?

 It would be good if you provide a small code example which produces this. Then we would know the specific KOMA class you are using and your settings regarding class, scrpage2 (or fancyhdr, possibly) and everything else involved. – Stefan Kottwitz♦ Jun 4 '11 at 10:38 the example below works – umar Jun 4 '11 at 11:55 For background information to this question (in German), see the KOMA-Script Documentation Project. – mhp Feb 15 '12 at 8:33

try this:

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{calc}
\ifoot{\rule{0pt}{\ht\strutbox+\dp\strutbox}Footer}
\begin{document}
\mbox{}
\end{document}
