Putting Footnotes and Endnotes in Documents
Entering a footnote or endnote
To enter a footnote or endnote in a document:
1. Place the cursor in the text where you want the note’s number or
symbol to appear.
2. On the References tab, click the Insert Footnote button (or press
Ctrl+Alt+F) or the Insert Endnote button (or press Ctrl+Alt+D).
In Print Layout view, Word scrolls to the bottom of the page or the end
of the document or section so that you can enter the note, as shown in
Figure 8-8. If you are in Draft view, the Notes pane opens at the bottom
of the screen with the cursor beside the number of the note you’re
about to enter.
3. Enter your footnote or endnote.
4. In Print Layout view, scroll upward to return to the main text; click
the Close button in the Notes pane if you’re in Draft view.
Click the Show Notes button at any time to see your notes in the Notes pane,
at the bottom of the page, or at the end of the section or document.
To quickly return from writing a note to the place in your document where
the footnote or endnote number citation is located, double-click the number
citation at the bottom of the page (in Print Layout view) or the Notes pane
(in Draft view). For example, if you just finished entering footnote 3,
doubleclick the number 3.
