Part VII: Handling Large Documents > Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

Chapter 30. Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

  • The difference between footnotes and endnotes

    Footnotes appear at the bottom of the page on which their reference marks appear; endnotes appear at the end of a section or chapter.

  • How to insert a footnote or endnote

    Use Insert, Footnote or Insert, Endnote to insert a footnote or endnote.

  • How to manage footnotes or endnotes with the capability to find, delete, copy, or move them

    You can manage footnotes or endnotes by working with the reference mark.

  • How to convert a footnote to an endnote, and an endnote to a footnote

    Convert footnotes and endnotes using the Convert button in the Note Options dialog box.

  • How to apply custom formats, numbering, and positioning to footnotes or endnotes

    Customize the separator, add a continuation notice for notes that continue on the next page, print footnotes directly beneath document text, and change the numbering scheme for notes.

Footnotes and endnotes have long been a staple of academic treatises—supplying additional information about a topic in the text or providing a reference. Footnotes and endnotes save you from having to clutter the text of your document with every piece of information you have. Instead, you can include parenthetical or reference information as a footnote or endnote listing. Because each note is referenced in the text, finding this extra information when you need it is easy.
