Changing the Position of Footnotes or Endnotes
Footnotes and
Endnotes
Tip: To make the Footnotes or Endnotes pane bigger, hover your mouse pointer over the border between
the main document and the pane. When the pointer changes to the Resize indicator (two parallel lines
with arrows above and below them), click and drag to resize the pane. Ah, now you’ve got some
breathing room while working with your notes.
Having both footnotes and endnotes is probably overkill, but if your document has
both, you can’t open both the Footnotes and Endnotes pane at the same time. When
you select References Show Notes (Alt, S, H), a dialog box appears asking whether
you want to see the footnotes or the endnotes. Turn on the radio button you want,
and then click OK.
Changing the Position of Footnotes or Endnotes
You have a couple of options for where footnotes or endnotes appear in your
document. Start by going to the References tab’s Footnotes section, and then click the
pop-out Footnote and Endnote button (Alt, S, Q). This opens the Footnote and
Endnote dialog box, shown in Figure 6-3.
The Location section has two radio buttons: Footnotes and Endnotes. Turn on the
radio button of the kind of notes you want to position, and then make one of these
choices from the drop-down list:
Footnotes: Bottom of page (the default) or below text.
Endnotes: End of section or end of document (the default).
In the Apply changes section, make sure the “Apply changes to” drop-down menu
shows “Whole document”. Click Apply to change the position of your notes.
Figure 6-3:
Use the Footnote and Endnote dialog box to change the location of your
notes, to convert one kind of note to the other, or to format the note markers
in the text.
