Move or copy a footnote or endnote

A note reference mark in a document

Callout 1 Note reference mark

When you want to move or copy a note, you work with the note reference mark (note reference mark: A number, character, or combination of characters that indicates that additional information is contained in a footnote or endnote.) in the document window, not the text in the note. If you move or copy an automatically numbered note reference mark, Microsoft Word renumbers the notes in the new order.

  1. In the document, select the note reference mark of the note you want to move or copy.
  2. Select whether to move or copy the note reference mark:
    • To move it, drag the mark to the new location.
    • To copy it, hold down CTRL, and then drag the mark to the new location.
