Word Chapter 2 Creating a Research Paper
Working with Footnotes and Endnotes
You edit footnote text just as you edit any other text in the document. To delete or
move a note reference mark, however, you must be in the document text (not in the
footnote text).
To delete a note, select the note reference mark in the document text (not in the
footnote text) by dragging through the note reference mark and then click the Cut
button on the Home tab. Another way to delete a note is to click immediately to the right of
the note reference mark in the document text and then press the BACKSPACE key twice, or
to click immediately to the left of the note reference mark in the document text and then
press the DELETE key twice.
To move a note to a different location in a document, select the note reference mark
in the document text (not in the footnote text), click the Cut button on the Home tab, click
the location where you want to move the note, and then click the Paste button on the Home
tab. When you move or delete notes, Word automatically renumbers any remaining notes in
the correct sequence.
If you position the mouse pointer on the note reference mark, the note text displays
above the note reference mark as a ScreenTip. To remove the ScreenTip, move the mouse
pointer.
If, for some reason, you wanted to change the format of note reference marks in
footnotes or endnotes (i.e., from 1, 2, 3, to A, B, C), you would click the Footnotes Dialog
Box Launcher to display the Footnote and Endnote dialog box, click the Number format
box arrow, click the desired number format in the list, and then click the OK button.
If, for some reason, you wanted to convert footnotes to endnotes, you would click
the Footnotes Dialog Box Launcher to display the Footnote and Endnote dialog box,
click the Convert button, make sure the Convert all footnotes to endnotes option button is
selected, click the OK button, and then click the Close button in the Footnote and Endnote
dialog box.
To Enter More Text
The next step is to continue typing text in the body of the research paper.
1 Position the insertion point after the note reference mark in the document, and then press
the ENTER key.
2 Type the third paragraph of the research paper (Figure 2–45): In many public
locations, people connect to the Internet through a wireless Internet
access point using mobile computers and devices. Two types of wireless
Internet access points are hot spots and 3-G networks. A 3-G network,
which uses cellular radio technology, enables users to connect to the
Internet through a mobile phone or computer equipped with an
appropriate PC Card. A hot spot is a wireless network that allows
mobile users to check e-mail, browse the Web, and access any Internet
service - as long as their computers or devices have the proper
wireless capability.
Spacing after
Punctuation
Because word processing
documents use variable
character fonts, it often is
diffi cult to determine in
a printed document how
many times someone
has pressed the SPACEBAR
between sentences.
The rule is to press the
SPACEBAR only once after
periods, colons, and
other punctuation marks.
