If a footnote or endnote overflows onto the next page, you can create a continuation notice to let readers know that a footnote or endnote is continued on the next page.
- Switch to normal view (normal view: A view that shows text formatting and a simplified page layout. Normal view is convenient for most editing and formatting tasks.).
- On the View menu, click Footnotes.
If your document contains both footnotes and endnotes, a message appears. Click View footnote area or View endnote area, and then click OK.
- In the note pane (pane: A portion of the document window bounded by and separated from other portions by vertical or horizontal bars.), click Footnote Continuation Notice or Endnote Continuation Notice.
- In the note pane, type the text you want to use for the continuation notice — for example, type Endnotes continued on the next page.
Note To view the continuation notice as it appears in the printed document, click Print Layout View on the horizontal scroll bar.
