Modify Footnote Annotations

Modify the footnote annotation type by editing the callout attribute value of a footnote element.

Insert a footnote element to a topic. See Insert Footnotes.
Important: We recommend using numerical annotations with textual content and symbolic annotations with numerical content. Footnotes with modified annotations do not update automatically as you add new footnotes.
  1. Select a footnote by doing any of the following:
    • Place your cursor directly after the footnote annotation.
    • At the bottom of the topic, in the Footnotes section, place your cursor anywhere in the Footnote content.
  2. Open the Attributes tab.
  3. In the Attributes tab, in the callout field, enter a custom annotation for the footnote.
