    Footnote (2003)

    Dear Loungers,

    When I create a footnote, Word creates a grey horizontal line between the footnote and the main text. This line is usually right above the first footnote on a page, but in a recent template I created, for some reason, it is about 1/4 of an inch above the first footnote. Can anyone tell me how to move it down a bit?

    Thanks!

    Does the style of the footnote or reference number have "space before" in the paragraph formatting? This might raise the bar, so to speak. If that isn't it, can you post a sample document that has this problem (replace any confidential or proprietary information with something suitable for public posting).

    Check that the Footnote Separator doesn't have a blank line after the horizontal line.

    In Word, switch to Normal View and then View > Footnotes (you must be in Normal View, not Print Layout view to do this)
    You should then see the footnotes in a separate pane, with a drop down menu that allows you to edit the Footnote Separator - see attached diagram.

    Stuart,

    There was in fact a line after the line. I wonder how it got there ...

    Thank you!
