Headers, Footers, and Page Breaks
In Google Docs headers and footers let you add important information to each page. Use the Google Docs page break feature to separate text.
Working with footnotes
A footnote provides additional information on the text it refers to. It could include information for how to learn more about the topic, or it could include a citation (a reference to published work) for a quote used in the text. Footnotes are commonly used in research reports and academic writing.
To add footnotes:
- Place the insertion point after the text the footnote will refer to.
- Click Insert, then select Footnote from the drop-down menu.
- Google Docs will place a superscript number in the body of the document, as well as at the bottom of the page. The insertion point will now be at the bottom of the page.
- Type the text you want to display as additional information.
- When you're done, press the Esc key on your keyboard to return to the body of the document.
