Chapter 30. Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes > Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes

When you insert a footnote or endnote, Word inserts a reference mark in the text at the current insertion point. The reference mark is usually a sequential number that identifies the note you are adding. You are then given the opportunity to type the text to which the reference mark refers.

If you are in Normal view, a pane opens at the bottom of the window. In that pane, you can type either a footnote or an endnote, depending on the type of note you selected. If you are in Page Layout view, Word moves the insertion point to the bottom of the page for footnotes, or to the end of the document for endnotes. Entering footnotes and endnotes becomes as visual and as easy as if you were manually writing in a notebook. But Word automatically adjusts the page lengths, because footnotes fill up the page. Endnotes at the end of the document are continually pushed to the last page as your document gets longer.
