Footnotes and endnotes in a Word document are useful entries for explanations and comments. However, the information may be trivial or even useless in some cases, especially when you have inherited the document from others and need to edit and update the notes. In such cases, it may make more sense to start afresh after removing all the footnotes and endnotes. In a large document with many entries, removing the notes individually may be a tedious exercise.
Word allows removing footnotes and endnotes individually, as well as collectively. We will explain all the methods for removing footnotes and endnotes:
- Individually by selecting the reference number
- Individually remove a specific footnote or endnote
- Individually from menus
- Collectively by using Find and Replace
