    Footnote Pane (Word 97)

    I work almost entirely in normal view and have a quick-key combo to view & edit footnotes.
    Question: Is there a way to ENLARGE the default pane size for footnote viewing? I'm getting real tired of pulling that top border up with the mouse every single time.

    Thanks ..... tigercubz

    Re: Footnote Pane (Word 97)

    Searching through help was no help, but I was able to record this macro (in Word 2000):
    <pre>Sub OpenFootnotesAt40Percent()
    ' Macro recorded 4/8/2002 by Jefferson Scher
    '
    If ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintView Or ActiveWindow. _
    ActivePane.View.Type = wdWebView Or ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = _
    wdPrintPreview Then
    ActiveWindow.View.SeekView = wdSeekFootnotes
    Else
    ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneFootnotes
    End If
    ActiveWindow.SplitVertical = 60
    End Sub</pre>

    You can save this and assign a keystroke to it. Edit as desired.

    Hi Jefferson:
    I took your macro & called it ViewFootnoteArea and saved it with a document, as a test. I thought it would replace the Word command of the same name, at least for that document. However, when I then went to the view menu & selected footnotes, the same smaller pane opened. Do you know why this wouldn't have replaced the Word command? I read the article Architecture: How Word Resolves Conflicts & would have thought that the macro in the document would have taken precedence (unless I've used the wrong Word command).

    Try ViewFootnotes; I didn't but it's such a literal match to the menu command name that I think it's worth a shot.
