More than one footnote in line


B

Hello,

I am writing a dissertation and quite often need to cite to one sourc
a number of times (e.g. "John Smith, 'Book' 13", "Ibid 25, "Ibid 40"
etc.). As a result, a large part of my page is filled with footnote
(I'm not allowed to use endnotes); which is a pain because there's
page limit.

So my question is: how do you set footnote settings so that there ca
be more than one footnote in one line of text (here's an example o
what I have in mind: http://tinyurl.com/2ds3e7t)

I tried to find the answer using Google but failed. I'd appreciate you
help. Thank you

Unfortunately, no. You can manage to get more than one footnote on a line,
but Word will still allow as much space as if they were stacked.

Thank you very much, Suzanne! May I ask how to get more than on
footnote on a line then? (even if Word will still leave extra space)

Set tab stops for the desired spacing/alignment. Then insert a tab character
at the end of one footnote and delete its paragraph break; the following
footnote will come up to that tab stop. If you've allowed for three on a
line, then repeat the process for the third.
