Converting Footnotes to Endnotes (or Vice Versa)
Say you’ve formatted all the notes in your research paper as footnotes, but then
you find out that the professor wants them formatted as endnotes. Changing them
sounds like a lot of work—but it’s not. It takes only a couple of clicks:
1. SelectReferences FootnoteandEndnote(Alt,S,Q).
The Footnote and Endnote dialog box (Figure 6-3) opens. At the bottom of the
Location section is a button labeled Convert.
2. ClicktheConvertbutton.
The Convert Notes dialog box opens with three options: “Convert all
footnotes to endnotes”, “Convert all endnotes to footnotes”, and “Swap footnotes
and endnotes”.
3. Turnon theradiobuttonof theoptionyouwant,and thenclickOK.Close
theFootnoteandEndnotedialogboxbyclickingApplyortheupper-rightX.
That’s it! You’ve converted your notes.
Changing Footnote or Endnote Markers
If you want to use a different style of marker from the standard ones Word uses (1,
2, 3 for footnotes and i, ii, iii for endnotes), you can do that from the Footnote and
Endnote dialog box (Figure 6-3). Here’s how:
1. SelectReferences FootnoteandEndnote(Alt,S,Q).
The Footnote and Endnote dialog box (Figure 6-3) opens.
2. IntheFormatsection,chooseanumberingschemefromthe“Numberformat”
drop-downlist.
You can choose from different formats using numbers, letters, Roman
numerals, or symbols.
3. Inthe“Startat”box,choosethestartingnumber, letter,orsymbolforyour
markers.Then,fromtheNumberingdrop-downmenu,choosewhetheryou
wantnotenumberingtobecontinuous,torestartwitheachnewsection,orto

Word changes your document’s note markers as you specified.
Deleting a Note
To delete a note, find the marker for the note you want to delete. Select it, and then
press Delete or Backspace. The marker and the note it referred to both go away.
