    1. Open a new document in normal view.
    2. Insert a footnote.
    3. In the footnote pane, switch to the continuation notice & type what you want.
    4. Delete the footnote.
    5. Save the document as a template.

    Any document that is created based on this template will now have that standard footnote continuation message. You could open normal.dot (NOT at document based on normal.dot) & perform steps 2-4 regarding footnotes & save the template. Then all new documents would have that message by default. However, you are better advised to create your own template when trying to create boilerplate text.
    Cheers,

    You will have to set this in the template. For "standard" documents, this is Normal.dot.

    Open Normal.dot.
    Switch to Normal view (if you are in Print Layout view.)
    Insert a footnote.
    Select Footnote Continuation Notice from the dropdown list in the Footnote pane.
    Enter the message you want.
    Close the Footnote pane.
    Erase the footnote marker (and the footnote with it.)
    Switch back to Print Layout view if you prefer that.
    Save and close Normal.dot.
