Hour 12. Handy Editing Techniques > Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

If you work in academia or are a researcher in the private sector, chances are you need to use footnotes and endnotes in your documents. Word's footnotes and endnotes feature is straightforward and easy to master. It handles all of the formatting for you and automatically numbers the footnotes/endnotes, renumbering as necessary when you insert new footnotes/endnotes in your document. Figure 12.20 shows a document with the Word window split to show you two footnote references at the top of the document, as well as the footnotes themselves at the bottom of the page. Endnotes are exactly like footnotes, except that they appear at the very end of the document instead of at the bottom of the page that contains the reference. You can have both footnotes and endnotes in the same document.
