View Footnotes Figure 6-10. Footnotes in their own pane (Normal, Outline, and Web Layout views) note indicator (the superscript number in the main text). Double-clicking the foot- note indicator or the footnote itself does the same thing. · In Normal, Outline, and Web Layout views, footnote indicators are displayed in the main text, but the actual footnotes are not. View Footnotes (or double-clicking a footnote indicator) opens a separate pane displaying the footnotes (Figure 6-10). Word separates document text from footnotes and endnotes with a short horizontal line called a note separator. If a note overflows onto the next page, Word also prints a longer line called a note continuation separator. Word inserts note separators automatically and there's not much you can do to govern their placement aside from arranging page breaks to try to accommodate longer notes. It is, however, fairly easy to customize separators by adding borders, text, or graphics, and to customize the notice Word prints after a note continuation separator. This notice is called a note continuation notice and the default text used is "This note continues on the next page." To customize a note separator or notice, first switch to Normal view and choose View Footnotes. In the footnotes pane, select the item to customize from the drop-down menu. Available items include Footnote Separator, Footnote Continuation Separator, and Footnote Continuation Notice. An Endnote version of these is also displayed if the document contains endnotes. Once the item to customize is selected, format it using any of Word's formatting tools. These items are paragraphs just like any other and accept formatting and inserted objects, such as graphics or fields. Here are a few other things to think about as you explore footnotes and endnotes: · Two predefined paragraph styles, Footnote Text and Endnote Text, govern the for- matting of footnotes and endnotes. Change these styles to alter the default format- ting. · Word automatically renumbers all existing footnotes and endnotes in a document whenever a new note is inserted or one is deleted.
