Open Office Writer add Footer

No matter if it is a scientific paper, a term paper or any other written assignment – when using citations, it is also important to indicate the corresponding sources. For this purpose, you can add a footer in Open Office Writer, in which you store the author or the corresponding work. But how do you do that? This function is actually very easy to use if you know where it is located. Therefore, we would like to show you where to find footnotes in Open Office and how to remove footnotes if necessary. So you are well prepared for every term paper!

Why use footnotes oder endnotes in Open Office Writer?

In general, you have two options. You can use both footnotes and endnotes. The difference is where you can find them in your work. Footnotes are always printed at the end of the page on which they are used. Endnotes are different. As the name suggests, you will find endnotes on the last page of your document. They are not appended to any text on the last page, but the last page is created exclusively for endnotes. Therefore, if you add new content, the endnotes can also move on if they would not otherwise have the last page to themselves.

Step-by-step instructions:

This is how you can add a footer in Open Office:

  • Select the text for which you want to create a footnote
  • Click on the tab “Insert” and “Footnote/Endnote”
  • Leave the numbering on Automatic (unless you want something individual)
  • Leave also the type on “Footnote” and click “OK”
  • At the end of the page there will be a footnote, which you can label individually
  • Done!

How to remove a footnote in Open Office:

  • Mark the number of the footnote in the text
  • Press the Remove key
  • Done!

This is how you can insert an endnote in Open Office:

  • Select the text for which you want to create a footnote
  • Click on the tab “Insert” and “Footnote/Endnote”
  • Leave the numbering on Automatic (unless you want something individual)
  • Leave also the type on “Endnote” and click “OK”
  • At the end of the document there will be an endnote, which you can label individually

Whether you want to insert or remove footnotes, or perhaps even discover endnotes for your own requirements, Open Office offers a suitable range of functions with which even complex work can be produced. Feel free to take a look at Youtube. There we will publish many more helpful videos on this topic in the near future. And now good luck with your work in OpenOffice!
