By default, when you create a Microsoft Word footnote, a line will appear above it at the bottom of your page. A client recently asked how they could get rid of the line.
To remove the line, go into Draft view, the fifth of the View buttons on the Status bar.
On the Reference tab, in the Footnotes group, click Show Notes.
From the Footnotes dropdown, select Footnote Separator.
Delete the separator.
On returning to Print Layout view, the line above the footnote will no longer be seen.
