I have been creating a document over many days. Suddenly, when I add a footnote, there is a big space after the line before the first footnote. In fact, there are 5 paragraph marks.
I don't seem able to get rid of this big space. Any ideas?
I'm running Windows XP - I know it's old and so too is Word 2003 but I see no benefit to my usage to upgrade.
In page setup, footers are set to be 1.25cm from the edge of A4 paper. Bottom margin is set to 1cm. It is a document of about 20 pages & I will print many copies so I am trying to print on as much of the page as possible.
1.On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and then click Footnote.
2.Under Location, click Footnotes or Endnotes.
3.Click the option you want in the Footnotes or Endnotes box. (there are 2 choices, Bottom of Page and Below Text)
Maybe you could change it from whatever it is at the moment and see if that fixes it.
Also I noticed in the Troubleshoot section it says: Microsoft Word automatically moves the part of the footnote that does not fit in the available space to the next page. The amount of available space depends on the amount of text on the page, the margin settings for the document, and the number and length of the footnotes.
