Typing the Research Paper Text
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, the insertion point 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
(Home tab | Clipboard group). Or, click immediately to the right of the note reference
mark in the document text and then press the backspace key twice, or 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 (Home tab |
Clipboard group), click the location where you want to move the note, and then click
the Paste button (Home tab | Clipboard group). 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 in the document text,
the note text is displayed 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 Footnote &
Endnote Dialog Box Launcher (References tab | Footnotes group) to display the Footnote
and Endnote dialog box, click the Number format box arrow (Footnote and Endnote
dialog box), click the desired number format in the list, and then click the Apply button.
If, for some reason, you wanted to convert footnotes to endnotes, you would click the
Footnote & Endnote Dialog Box Launcher (References tab | Footnotes group) to display
the Footnote and Endnote dialog box, click the Convert button (Footnote and Endnote
dialog box), select the ‘Convert all footnotes to endnotes’ option button, click the OK
button, and then click the Close button (Footnote and Endnote dialog box).
Footnote and Endnote
Location
You can change the
location of footnotes from
the bottom of the page
to the end of the text by
clicking the Footnotes
and Endnote Dialog Box
Launcher (References
tab | Footnotes group),
clicking the Footnotes
box arrow (Footnote and
Endnote dialog box),
and then clicking Below
text. Similarly, clicking
the Endnotes box arrow
(Footnote and Endnote
dialog box) enables you
to change the location of
endnotes from the end of
the document to the end
of a section.
To Enter More Text
The next step is to continue typing text in the body of the research paper. The
following steps enter this text.
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– 47): Similarly, the
Nintendo Wii console uses triangulation to determine the
location of a Wii Remote. A player places a sensor bar,
which contains two infrared transmitters, near or on top
of a television. While the player uses the Wii Remote,
the Wii console determines the remote’s location by
calculating the distance and angles between the Wii Remote
and the two transmitters on the sensor bar. Determining
the location of a Wii Remote is relatively simple
because the sensor bar contains only two fixed points:
the transmitters.
