Microsoft Word Footnotes

#1
When writing footnotes, there is an unwanted one line gap between the different citations.

E.g.

23 Author, Title, Publisher, Year
XXXXXUNWANTED LINEXXXXXXX
24 Author, Title, Publisher,Year,

Any ideas? Ive tried clicking, copying and pasting, everything. And the Styles menu.

Im running Office XP.

Is it actually an unwanted line break or whitespace?
Select the footnote text and check the paragraph options. There will be options for "space before" and "space after", if these have a measurement in them (i.e. not set to 0) then try reducing them. e.g. space before =0, space after = 1mm

I think I would google it and then you will find a forum which will solve the problem. I had a prob with i tunes 7 solved it in about 30 seconds

Highlight the footnote then click under tools i think, maybe something else you'll see "paragraph" under the spacing heading, choose single line spacings on the right and on the left under before and after change to 0 pt.

:thumright: I also should have mentioned that you will want to redefine the paragraph properties through a change of the Footnote style but guessed you worked that out anyway.

I dunno I answered the question in less than a minute of the original posting, so that's not bad going - who needs other forums :D
