Any columns in your document?


A sample would help.

Thanks! I tried to attach them in my first post but they didn't come through, thanks for the link!



I hope it worked this time?



As far as I know, I have never inserted any columns, but am also unaware of how I would be able to check for those. If I can provide any further information feel free to tell me!

Sorry about the size of those pics.. As you can see, the first one shows you how one page in the whole document appears, the second shows you how the rest looks (and how the one page should look as well...)

There are two different separators. The longer one is looks like it is a 'Footnote Continuation Separator' rather than a 'Footnote Separator'. I'm not sure what triggers the Continuation Separator and perhaps someone will chip in or you could do a Google search to figure it out. I would have assumed that the continuation separator appeared when a footnote was so large that it split across a second page but that doesn't appear to be the case with your short one line examples.

So I would just edit the separators so they are both the same appearance. To do this, change the view to Draft View and then double click on one of the footnote references. This will split the screen so you can see the footnote area at the bottom of the screen. There is a Footnotes dropdown that lets you select the Footnote Separator and the Footnote Continuation Separator. If you copy/paste from one to the other you should be able to give both the same appearance.

Thanks a lot, that worked! Now I also know there are two types of separators... Still have no idea why this one page would have been triggered to show the Continuation type, but it's fixed Again, thanks so much!
