    footnote size (2000)

    How can I give myself more space for a footnote (not the footer)? Thx.

    What do you mean? The size of the footnote area adapts itself automatically to the amount of text. Type a few extra lines in a footnote and the area will expand, delete a few lines from a footnote and the area will contract.

    You mean it is supposed to adapt itself automatically to the amount of text. It does not do so. After about 4 or 5 lines of 10 pt./ text it bleeds over onto the next page, then quickly bleeds over onto a 3rd page... Very bad behavior, and it happens in many different docs.

    What's the solution?

    Take a look at http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Formatting/F...eOnDiffPage.htm which gives a number of suggestions. Probably the most important one is to set your line spacing (Format/Paragraph...) to an exact amount, rather than Auto.
