Typically, Word documents like books, reports, and letters have paragraphs that occupy the whole page width. In articles, newsletters, flyers, and brochures, all or only parts of the text may be arranged in two or more columns:
You can create two types of numbering for formulas and equations in the Word document:
A footnote or endnote is usually indicated by a superscript number immediately following the text or phrase to which the note refers. Some requirements demand other symbols instead of numbers if there are a few footnotes in the document. For example, asterisks (*) or daggers(†) are used instead.
If you work with tables in a Word document, you may need to add a special kind of footnotes, which are placed not at the end of the page or after the text but immediately after the table:
Footnotes are short notes at the bottom of the page that provide explanations, additional comments, or an understanding of a particular word or phrase in the document content. Endnotes are the same as footnotes but appear at the end of an entire section or document.
Requirements for book, reports, thesis, and other documents, in addition to page numbers, demand a piece of additional document information located at the top or bottom of each page. To display duplicating information such as a document title, author or responsible person name, date of the last modification, etc., use the Header at the top of every page or the Footer at the bottom of every page.
