Inserting and Editing Footnotes or Endnotes

Footnotes reference more information about a topic at the bottom of a page and endnotes reference information at the end of the document. LibreOffice automatically numbers the footnotes and endnotes.

  2. Choose Insert - Footnote and Endnote - Footnote or Endnote.

  3. In the \Numbering \area, select the format that you want to use. If you select \Character\, click the browse button (\...\) and select the character that you want to use for the footnote.

  4. In the \Type \area, select \Footnote \or \Endnote\.

  5. Click \OK\.

  6. Type the note.


You can also insert footnotes by clicking the \Insert Footnote Directly\ icon on the \Insert\ toolbar.

Insert Endnote Icon

You can insert endnotes directly by clicking the Insert Endnote icon on the Standard or Insert toolbar or choose Insert - Footnote and Endnote - Endnote.
