Inserting Footnotes and Endnotes
Display the Footnote And Endnote dialog box by clicking the dialog launcher in the
lowerright corner of the Footnotes group on the References tab. Then follow these steps to
customize the default settings:
In the Location section of the Footnote And Endnote dialog box, click either the
Footnotes or Endnotes option.
In the Format section, click the Number Format arrow and then choose the
numbering scheme you want to use for the note reference marks that identify your
footnotes or endnotes (depending on which item you selected).
You’ll find all the traditional choices—numeric, alphabetic, and roman numerals—
plus something different: a collection of special symbols. You can choose your own
special symbol by clicking Symbol and choosing the symbol you want to use from the
displayed gallery in the Symbol dialog box.
If you want to start the footnote or endnote with a number other than 1, click in the
Start At box and then type the number you want.
4. To indicate that you want footnote and endnote numbering to restart at the
beginning of each new section, choose Restart Each Section in the Numbering box.
If you have divided your document into sections, you can change the default value in
the Apply Changes option.
Click the arrow to display your choices—you can leave the default setting of Whole
Document or choose This Section.
6. Click Insert to add the note with your customized settings.
The complete footnote and endnote references are visible only in Print Layout
and Full Screen Reading view by default. If you want to display and perhaps edit
a footnote while working in Web Layout, Outline, or Draft view, simply
doubleclick the reference marker. This opens the Footnotes pane at the bottom of the
Word window where you can view and edit the note as needed.
