Chapter 7. Advanced Word Processing > Footnotes and Endnotes

7.2. Footnotes and Endnotes

Footnotes, as any research scholar can tell you, are explanations or citations located at the bottom of each page, referred to by a small superscript number or symbol in the main text. (See Figure 7-3 for an example.) Endnotes are similar, except that they're listed together in a clump at the end of the document, instead of on each page. Word can handle each kind of annotation gracefully. Here's how to insert a footnote or endnote into your document:

Figure 7-3. Top: In Normal view, you can edit your footnotes or endnotes by choosing View Footnotes; feel free to drag the gray divider bar up or down. (In Page Layout view, the footnotes and endnotes are readily visible; you can edit them directly on the page.)
Bottom: The gray divider bar contains a pop-up menu that lets you specify what you want to see and edit—the separator line, the separator text itself, footnotes, or endnotes.
