Default Spaces after footnotes

Had the same problem and what actually worked was converting the file to the newest format (it originally opened in Compatibility mode)

How do I remove the large space that appears between footnotes and the
bottom of the page in Word?


In View:Outline mode, select View:Footnotes, and go through the Footnote Separator, Footnote Continuation Separator, and Footnote Continuation Notice formats from the pull-down list, and make sure each one does not have any extra paragraph returns at the bottom. I tried that, and it removed the extra spaces from the bottom of all my footnotes.

Thanks philip it worked for me.
