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.

The following options are not available for working with a footnote text:

Endnotes are not supported

Adding the regular footnotes to any elements except tables, and footnotes is not allowed.

For regular footnotes, consecutive numbering is supported throughout the document. Arabic numerals are used for numbering.

To add a regular footnote to your document, follow these steps:

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

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

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

Place the cursor or select 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.

On the Toolbar, in the Insert section, click t_more. On the displayed insert pane, click the t_insert_footnote Footnote button.

Press Ctrl+Alt+F.

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

If the document contains no other footnotes, the added footnote is assigned the number 1. If the document contains other footnotes, the added footnote is assigned a sequential number corresponding to its position relative to the other footnotes.

Navigate to a footnote

When you hover the cursor over a footnote in the main text of the document, a pop-up window with the text of the footnote is displayed.

Editing and formatting of the footnote text is performed the same way as editing or formatting the main text of a document.

Delete the footnote mark in the main body of the document. The footnote number and text at the end of a page, section or document will be deleted automatically.
