Footnotes supplement content with references to additional information and are typically placed below the main body of the document.
By default, footnotes are indicated by numerical annotations. Heretto CCMS automatically manages their order. For example, if you insert a new footnote between existing footnotes, their order updates accordingly to their position in the topic.
You insert symbolic annotations by modifying the callout attribute value of a footnote. Symbolic annotations do not update automatically. For example, if you insert a new footnote between existing symbolic footnotes, you need to update their annotations manually.
You can annotate multiple items in a topic with a single footnote.
Depending on the output, footnotes can render differently. For example, in some outputs, footnotes may be rendered as endnotes. You can change the way footnotes render by modifying publishing scenarios.
