Most of us already know how to change all of our endnotes to footnotes, but suppose you only want to change some of them? Is there is a way to walk through your endnotes and decide, on a note-by-note basis, if it should be changed to a footnote.
Well, the short answer is that there is no built in feature in Word that will do that for you. There is, however, a method you can use to selectively make the changes.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Be certain you can see your document’s endnotes on your screen. You want to see your actual endnotes, not just the endnote reference.
- Right-click an endnote that you would like to change to a footnote to display a Context menu.
- Select the Convert to Footnote option.
- Word will immediately change the endnote to a footnote.
The reverse is also true — you can follow the same procedure to convert individual footnotes to endnotes.
