Hi there,My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be assisting you with this issue.
I believe the bottom space 4-5 paragraphs is reserved for the footer
if you want this removed then click on page layout
then margins select custom margins
for the bottom set this to 0 or increase this if it's too low
Let me know if I totally misunderstood your requirements and then we can discuss further.
I tried that Marco and it still leaves 5 paragraph spaces under the footnote separator
can you send me the document using wikisend.com
I just tried it on mine
and the last footnote touches the bottom
did you select bottom 0 cm for the page margins?
The problem is not the space below the footnote.. but between the footnote separator and the foot note...shall I send it to you?
So in between the line and the first footnote?
Yes ..in between the footnote separator line and the footnotes.
see the image
if you go to the footnote
Yes in that space I have 5 paragraph returns I cannot edit out.
and select page layout
what do you have set in the before?
mine is 0
six for each of before and after
change it please
I changed it to 0 and nothing affects the footnote separator spaces
that should fix it
I am sorry but it did not
did you highlight the footnote
I chose 6 and it increased the space between the line and the first footnote
The problem is with the spaces before the foot ntoe..I cannot edit there.. the spacing of the footnotes is fine.
It might make it easier if you can send me the document
How can I do that?
go to wikisend.com and click upload
then once if finishes uploading tell me what the download link is
make sure the information is not confidential
It is a confidential planning document...I will try to save a copy of pages and send them to you to work on...just give me a minute.
How do I do that without leaving this page?
can you open another tab
or another explorer
OK do you need the download link or the forum link?
Here you go
http://wikisend.com/download/650498/Dementia Model of Care_Draft Pages.docx
Does that work... ?
let me check and get back to you
OK..should I keep this open or can you email once you sort it out?
keep this open
unfortunately we won't be able to email
OK..will just toggle between a few other documents.
do you know the name of the theme you used for your document
i think it's related to the theme
because if you create a new document you don't have the same problem
No.... it was developed for my business. So if that's the problem do I have to copy everything into a new document? Would I lose my formatting etc if I do?
i'll work out how to edit the theme
Thanks... the colour scheme in particular.. I think I can re-create a cover page from other documents.
ok try this
do a select all
copy it in a new document
the footnotes will be missing
but you should be able to recreate it?
There's only 4?
do you want to try whilst i wait for you here?
I tried 'select all' from the right hand ribbon and it did not paste the whole document.
press control A
did that but when I paste only a paragraph shows up
how did you go?
got it... wasn't copying after select all.. I have a copy document ...now what?
so you pasted it in a new document?
Yes and everything looks great! Thanks you very much.. problem solved...
did you insert the new footnotes?
Everything including foot notes converted quite nicely.
can you insert the footnotes and just make sure the spacing is right
just to make sure it doesn't change anything
Yes. they are great.
wow this was tricky.
Can I give you your excellent rating and we get on with our day? Thanks so much.
