This tip is handy for those in academia or law offices, but who knows – there could be many other people out there who could use this tip. I have had a recent request for this information so I thought I would write an article covering it for the Newsletter.
Suppose you want to use a footnote and then you want want to reference that same footnote multiple times throughout your document?
Follow the steps below to learn how:
Insert your footnote as you normally would (Reference Tab | Footnotes group | Insert Footnote) or the shortcut (CTRL + Alt + F).
Word will place a number, letter or symbol that is used to refer to your footnote.
For your next reference to that footnote:
- On the Reference tab in the Captions group, click Cross-reference.
- Under Reference type, select Footnote.
- A list of all your footnotes will display in the lower half of the dialog box.
- Select your footnote and click on Enter.
