A footnote is a reference or explanatory information to a word or paragraph of a text.

A distinction is made between footnotes and endnotes. Regular footnotes are placed at the bottom of the page, and endnotes are placed at the end of a section or document.

Footnotes consist of the following elements:

A footnote mark which is placed immediately after the word or paragraph to which it refers.

The footnote number and text placed at the bottom of the page, below the separator bar following the main text.

Insert a footnote

In the current version of MyOffice Text the following rules apply:

Regular footnotes support consecutive numbering throughout the document. For endnotes, either consecutive numbering or section numbering is supported if configured in a third-party text editor.

Arabic numerals are used for regular footnotes. Endnotes are numbered using the format i, ii, iii, .... or the format selected when working with the document in a third-party text editor, if this format is supported in MyOffice Text.

By default, endnotes are displayed at the end of the document. End-of-section display is supported if it is configured in a third-party text editor.

Footnotes may not be added to any objects other than tables, comments, and footers.

To insert a footnote, do the following:

1.Specify where you want to insert a footnote in one of the following ways:

Place the mouse cursor at the desired location of the text.

Highlight the text fragment after which you want to insert a footnote.

Place the cursor or highlight the table cell to which you want to add a footnote.

Select the cell range to which you want to add a footnote. In this case, the footnote character will be placed after the last character of the lower right cell.

2.Add a footnote in one of the following ways:

In the Command menu, select Insert > Footnote. In the sub-menu that opens, select the desired footnote type.

On the Toolbar, in the Insert section, click the t_more button. On the insert pane that appears, place the cursor on the t_insert_footnote Footnote menu and in the window that opens select the desired footnote type.

Press Ctrl+Alt+F to insert a regular footnote or Ctrl+Alt+D to insert an endnote.

3.A footnote symbol will appear at the specified location in the document and a footnote number will appear at the bottom of the page, section, or document. Enter the footnote text after the footnote number.

If the document contains no other footnotes, the regular footnote is assigned the number 1 and the endnote is assigned the i symbol when inserted.

If the document contains regular footnotes, the regular footnote is assigned a sequential number corresponding to its position relative to other regular footnotes.

If the document contains endnotes, the following applies to them:

The footnote format of the current document is applied.

A sequence number corresponding to its position relative to other endnotes is assigned .
