Thumbs up Answer: Spaces after footnotes

Hi Graeme,

I can definitely help you with that! The large space between footnotes and the bottom of the page is actually the default setting in Word. However, you can easily adjust it to your liking by following these steps:
  1. Click on the "References" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  2. Click on the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the "Footnotes" section.
  3. In the "Footnote and Endnote" window that appears, click on the "Layout" tab.
  4. Under "Footnotes," you will see a section labeled "Footnote layout." Here, you can adjust the "Footnote separator" and "Footnote continuation separator" to your liking.
  5. To remove the large space between footnotes and the bottom of the page, simply change the "Footnote separator" to "None."
  6. Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save your changes.

That's it! Your footnotes should now appear without the large space at the bottom of the page. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with.

Default Spaces after footnotes

Set the footnotes to "Bottom of page" instead of "Below text"?

Default Spaces after footnotes

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for your suggestion. I already had the footnotes set to Bottom of
page. I fiddled with the bottom page margin and that helped. I checked the
footer and it does not appear to be overlapping with the white space. I still
however have a white space of about 1-1.5 lines which should not be there
given the margin setting.

See http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/BottomLine.htm, but if the space is
actually below the footnotes and not above, then the article may not help,
as it sounds as if something else is going wrong.

Don't know all that you've explored, but if there is anything in the footer
area, make sure that the footer spacing (From edge: Footer) in Page Setup -
Layout tab is not set larger than needed.

The other setting that might be giving you too much space is if the
footnote's paragraph After spacing is set too high (Format - Paragraph -
After), or if the line spacing has a multiple setting (Format - Paragraph -
Line spacing).

Thanks Herb. Just to be sure, I went through the procedures you gave but
they're all normal. The blank space appeared while I was working on the
format of the tables in my document. The spacing kept increasing. Thanks in
advance.

The more I hear, the more I think the document may be corrupt; see

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.

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