    We are working on a lengthy report that includes a number of footnotes. Word's standard style for adding footnotes is to place a short horizontal line between the regular text and the footnotes, to create a separate section where the footnotes are placed. We would like to remove this line. It does not appear to be part Footnote Text paragraph style. In fact, it does not appear to be part of any Word style that I can find.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for removing or modifying this line?

    Thanks

    Switch to Draft View.

    Click the Show notes icon in the Footnotes group on the References tab.

    Locate the drop-down in the Note Pane; click it and change it to display "Footnote Separator."

    That should enable you to modify or delete the line.

    Let us know.
