The bibliography application we have is called ENDNOTE, which is used mainly to add and manage research references in various academic styles (such as APA, MLA). It helps you to add a reference in the paper you write, but this is not necessarily the same with the “footnote” or “endnote” you sometimes have in addition to such references or bibliography. They could be the same in some styles, though.
You can add footnotes or endnotesrather easily in Word, and convert footnotes to endnotes or the other way around, provided you have added these notes using Word’s automatic footnote insertion function. Here is a short tutorial on how to do this. Once you click on this link, you will see the North Institute iTunesU page on which this tutorial will be selected. Double click on it to play. Also, you are more than welcome to subscribe to this podcast so that similar tutorials like this can be fed into your iTunes.
As mentioned in the tutorial, using hotkey combinations would make it easy to add such notes:
- For Mac, press Command + Alt (Options) + F to add footnote;
- For Windows, press Ctrl + Alt + F to add footnotes.
Please give it a try and let me know if this will work.
