A footnote is a reference or explanatory information for 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 the document.
A footnote contains the following elements:
•A footnote mark 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.
In the current version of MyOffice Text it is not possible to use endnotes.
For regular footnotes, continuous numbering is supported throughout the document. Arabic numerals are used for numbering.
You can insert a footnote anywhere in the document except headers and footers.
To insert a footnote, do the following:
1.Specify the place to insert a footnote in of the following ways:
•Place the cursor in the required place of the text.
•Select a fragment of text where you want a footnote to appear.
•Place the cursor in the required cell of the table.
•Select a cell or range of cells where you want to add a footnote. The footnote appears after the last character of the lower right cell.
2.Insert a footnote using one of the following tips:
•In the menu, click > .
•On the Toolbar, select the Insert section and click . In the insert pane that appears, click .
•Press Option+ Cmd+F.
3.A footnote mark appears in the specified place in the document, and the footnote number appears at the bottom of the page. Enter the text of the footnote after its number.
If the document does not contain other footnotes, the added footnote is assigned a number one. If the document contains other footnotes, the added footnote is assigned an ordinal number corresponding to its location relative to the other footnotes.
Press Cmd and click the footnote mark in the main body of the document to go to a footnote. The cursor automatically moves to the footnote text at the end of the page or document.
Editing and formatting of the footnote text is performed the same way as editing or formatting the main text of a document.
To delete a footnote, do one of the following steps:
•Remove the footnote mark in the main body of the document. The number and text of the footnote at the end of the page or document will be deleted automatically.
•Select the text in the footnote or place the cursor anywhere on footnote at the end of the page or document. Right-click the selected text and select in the shortcut menu. The footnote mark in the main document body will be deleted automatically.
When you remove a footnote, the numbering of the remaining footnotes is automatically updated.
