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.
If you use citations in your Word documents, you might need the bibliographic items for each source that you have referenced. Microsoft Word offers a useful tool to create a list of these bibliographic references, also named as Bibliography, References, or Works Cited, as a list of the citations added in the document.
