Footnotes and Endnotes provide clarity and resource information to a document.
When to use
A footnote is an additional piece of information that is noted at the bottom of a page or document. It is literally a 'note' about the text and is always printed on the same sheet as the referenced text.
An endnote, rather, is a note placed at the “end” of the entire document or text.
These references would be used in any type of document that would require citing sources of information to substantiate the credibility of your text.
- Place your insertion point at the end of the text where you want the number reference to appear.
- For a Footnote, press Alt + Ctrl + F
for an Endnote, press Alt + Ctrl + D
- You can also find the tools on the References ribbon in the Footnotes groups.
- As more footnotes and endnotes are created, the numerical order is updated automatically.
- As pages adjust, the footnotes will remain linked to their referenced text and adjust to their new pages automatically.
