Default Continuing Footnote & Continuous Section Break

Hello,
A user I support requires a Continuous Section Break on a page which
displays the continuing portion of a footnote from the page above. When the
CSB is inserted, it appears to behave as if it is a Next Page SB, i.e.
everything beneath it goes to the following page (the third page of this
example). As soon as the footnote content is made short enought not to
continue onto a second page, the CSB behaves as desired. Is this because it's
not possible in Word for a footnote to continue into a new section? Is there
a setting that would allow this or any way to force it to happen?
Thanks,
Will Crosby

Default Continuing Footnote & Continuous Section Break

Thanks very much. While this does allow a few lines to behave as desired, the
footnote continuation still inserts itself inexplicably half way up the
second page, forcing content to the following page when there is no
formatting to warrant it. Do you have further advice? Thank you again.
