Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes
When you’re ready to insert a footnote or endnote in your document, follow these steps:
1. Click where you want to add the footnote or endnote.
2. On the References tab, in the Footnotes group, click either the Insert Footnote or
Insert Endnote command.
The reference marker is added (to the bottom of the current page, for a footnote, or
on the last page of the document, for an endnote). Default values are used to
determine the reference marker, the format, and the numbering sequence of the notes.
3. Type the text for the note.
Customizing Footnotes and Endnotes
You can modify a number of footnote and endnote settings to customize the way the
notes appear. For example, you might want to use letters instead of numbers as the
reference marks; or perhaps you would like to insert a symbol to indicate a footnote or endnote
instead of using traditional numbers or letters.
Another change you might want to make involves the sequencing of the notes. If you are
working on a collaborative document and have divided a master document into
subdocuments for assignment to different team members, you might want to start the footnote
numbering at a number other than 1. You can do this by changing the Start At value in the
Footnote And Endnote dialog box (see Figure 10-20).
