Finding a Footnote Reference
To quickly find the reference mark for a particular footnote or endnote, follow these steps:
- Click the Home tab, and in the Editing group, choose Find → Go To.
Or, press Ctrl+G. You see a dialog box that isn't worthy of a separate figure.
- In the Go To What list box, select Footnote or Endnote.
- In the Enter Footnote Number text box, type the number of the footnote you want to go to.
If the notes are numbered with reference symbols (*, †, ‡, and §), type the corresponding number (1, 2, 3, and so on).
- Click Go To and then click Close.
Or, for an even easier method, click the Select Browse Object button, located near the bottom of the scroll bar on the right edge of the document window. Then choose one of these buttons from the pop-up menu that appears:
- Browse by endnote
- Browse by footnote
The double-headed up- and down-arrow buttons that appear above and below the Select Browse Object button change so that they go to the previous and next footnote or endnote, respectively.
