    Hello! How can I delete the empty space above my footnotes? It seems that my Word 2007 decides on its own to leave a paragraph-long space on top of my footnotes at the bottom of each page. I have tried so many ways to remove that space, but I just don't find a solution. My 2003 Word version allowed me to go to "View Footnotes" and fix the spacing, and a number of other things. 2007 Word does not allow me to view them or fix their spacing. Can any one tell me how to solve this problem?

    Change the View to Draft mode. Select the Show Notes option on the References ribbon. Remove pilcrows that might be creating the extra space. I found some good info here:

    Thank you for your quick reply. I've tried your suggestion and it has worked in some ways, but I am still unable to remove the extra space --one paragraph long-- between the separating line and the actual footnotes. For some reason this extra empty space is shortening the amount of text per page, and what was a 30 pages text is now more than 75 pages. I don't know how to delete the extra empty space between the separating line and the actual footnotes. Would someone please tell me how I can solve this issue? Thank you, R-2013.
