Creating Footnotes

Footnotes at the bottom of the page (the so-called usual footnotes) and endnotes are used for explanations, comments or references to primary sources in the created document. The program allows you to simultaneously use both footnotes at the bottom of the page, and endnotes in the same document, for example, one kind of footnotes intended for detailed comments, and another (for example, endnotes) for references to quoted sources. Regular footnotes are printed at the bottom of the page, and endnotes are printed at the end of the section or document.

A footnote of any kind consists of two related parts: a reference marker for the footnote and a footnote text corresponding to this marker. The user can use automatic footnote numbering or create their own footnote markers. In automatic numbering mode, footnote markers change whenever a user inserts, deletes, or moves footnote text.

You can copy the footnote text into the document itself or into another document. To do this, use the Clipboard. In order to create another link on the same footnote, you need to insert a cross-reference to this footnote and assign this style a footnote.

You can use the object view buttons to quickly view footnotes in a document. Note that non-standard footnote markers are not updated or renumbered. To change the formatting of footnotes, you must change the footnote style.
