    Hey,

    I insert a lot of footnotes in Word, and I don't want the separetors. But I find that I just can't delet the footnote separators in it. It's annoying. Is there a way to quickly delete them ? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Maciej,

    As the way Wolfie give above, you can delete the footnote separators, but there will be a blank line left which you can't delete directly.

    If you also want to delete the blank line, after delete the footnote separators, you need to choose “Multiple” for “Line spacing”, then set the value at “0.06”in "Paragraph" group.

    You can also use VBA to do that for you, below is the macro:

    Code:
    Sub DeleteTheFootnoteSeparator()
    
      If ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneNone Then
        ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdNormalView
      Else
        ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdNormalView
      End If
     
      If ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintView Or ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdWebView Or _
        ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintPreview Then
        ActiveWindow.View.SeekView = wdSeekFootnotes
      Else
        ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneFootnotes
      End If
     
      '  Delete the footnote separator.
      ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneFootnoteSeparator
      Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
      Selection.TypeBackspace
      Selection.TypeBackspace
     
      '  Eliminate the blank line after deleting the footnote separator.
      With Selection.ParagraphFormat
        .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceMultiple
        .LineSpacing = LinesToPoints(0.06)
      End With
    
      '  Delete the footnote continuation separator.
      ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneFootnoteContinuationSeparator
      Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
      Selection.TypeBackspace
      Selection.TypeBackspace
    
      '  Eliminate the blank line after deleting the footnote continuation separator.
      With Selection.ParagraphFormat
        .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceMultiple
        .LineSpacing = LinesToPoints(0.06)
      End With
     
      If ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneNone Then
        ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintView
      Else
        ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView
      End If
    End Sub

    To delete all automatically numbered footnotes in a document, follow these steps:
    1. Position the insertion point at the beginning of your document.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Replace.
    3. If you see More, click it. Click Special, and then click Footnote Mark.
    4. Leave the Replace box empty.
    5. Click Replace All and click OK on the confirmation of how many replacements were made.
    6. Click Close.
