Default How can I remove unwanted returns above a footnote?

When I insert a footnote, Word adds two paragraph returns above the footnote
text. I see a short horizontal rule, two returns, and then my text. I am
unable to select the unwanted returns - and the horizontal rule for that
matter. I am using Word 7. I'll appreciate any help on this!

Switch to Draft view. On the References tab, click Show Notes. In the Footnotes
pane, choose to display the Footnote Separator. Delete the excessive paragraph
marks.

Hi Stefan,

When I view the footnote in draft mode, there are no extra returns. What
else can I try?

Do you have nonprinting marks displayed (you can use Ctrl+Shift+8 as a toggle)?
Excessive paragraph marks will be shown as pilcrows ().

Was it a matter of hiding/showing paragraph marks (see my other reply)?

Anyway, I'm glad you got it sorted. :-)
