Inserting footnotes in text

To add footnotes to the text, use MS Word's Footnote functionality.


Do not create footnotes by positioning a normal text paragraph at the bottom of the page, except for footnotes inside a table. In that case, use the style SUPerscript from the IEC template to format the reference to the footnote.


To insert a footnote, got to the References tab and click on Insert Footnote (1).


A space at the bottom of the page will open and allow you to directly insert the footnote.


To modify the default values for footnote creation, click on the arrow next to Footnotes (2).

The Footnotes window (see image below) will display and allow you to change parameters.
