Details

Footnotes_illustration_small.png Footnotes and end notes allow you to mark a section of your document with a number or symbol and then provide a clarification or citation in the footer preceded by the same number or symbol. This includes plain text as well as the use of Windward tags to update footnotes and end notes dynamically.

Example

A basic example containing both a footnote and end note works as follows:

Footnotes

You insert a footnote by placing your cursor at a point in your document where you want the footnote reference mark to appear.  In the Microsoft Word Ribbon bar navigate to the References tab and select Insert Footnote. The reference mark now appears in your text and at the bottom of the page the same reference mark appears. Start adding your text or Windward dynamic tags for the footnote in this area. To return to the previous point in your document, just double-click on the footnote mark.

End Notes

You insert a end note by placing your cursor at a point in your document where you want the end note reference mark to appear.  In the Microsoft Word Ribbon bar navigate to the References tab and select Insert Endnote. The reference mark now appears in your text and at the end of the section or document the same reference mark appears. Start adding your text or Windward dynamic tags for the end note in this area. To return to the previous point in your document, just double-click on the end note mark.
