Deleting Footnotes and Endnotes
If you have previously inserted footnotes or endnotes into your document and you want to later delete one of them, follow these steps:
- Highlight the footnote or endnote reference mark in your document. (In the document itself, not in the footnote or endnote area.)
- Press either Del or Ctrl+X.
The footnote or endnote is deleted, and if you are using auto-numbered footnotes or endnotes, the remaining notes in your document are renumbered.
You should note that it does no good to delete the footnote or endnote text; you must delete the footnote or endnote reference itself.
