So how can I insert a footnote in textbox?? Help! OssianModerator May 12, 2017 at 2:31 am #191659 It would appear you cannot insert a footnote or an endnote into a textbox, however you can convert it to a frame and then insert the footnote. See https://word.tips.net/T003416_Adding_Endnotes_in_Text_Boxes.html (thank you :google:) Note this does not mention Word 2010, however the same method seems to still apply (https://word.tips.net/T003416_Adding_Endnotes_in_Text_Boxes.html) Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
