    Greetings.

    I have a problem with my footnotes when I use "Justified" alignment.
    Spaces after numbers in some of my footnotes are not equal. Does anyone know how to make them equal?
    By the way, I use MS Word 2003.

    One way to do this would be to modify the Footnote Text style, to include a tab at something like .2 inches.
    That way, when you insert a footnote, you'd have to type a tab before inserting the footnote text, but the benefit would be that the footnote text would always start at a defined location.
    If you wanted, while modifying the Footnote Text style, you could also set it to have a hanging indent.

    And you can also create a custom InsertFootnote macro to intercept the built-in command, which would automatically insert the needed tab, when adding a footnote.

    Thank you for your fast reply. It worked for me like a charm. That was very helpful. I will keep this advice in mind. Have a nice day
