Footnote Border

Oct 26, 2012 9:26 AM

Tags: #border #footnote #break

Hello,

 

For the document I am creating I have a custom footbote border. Its essentially a fancy line. I want to use this image as the border to seperate my page from my footnotes. Unfortunately indesign puts the small line to show the small break between the page and the footnotes and I cannot figure out how to change it to the custom line I have drawn. Any insights on conquering this issue would be appreceiated.

 

Thanks.

    In the Document Footnote Otions dialog open the Layout tab. The bottom half of that screen is devoted to the options for the rule between the body and notes.

     

    On the right side is a dropdown where you can choose any standard line style or any saved custom stroke style you create. If yuo stroke is not a custom or standard stroke style, my guess would be you'd have to set no stroke here, then add your line as an anchored object.

    I'm afraid ID won't do that.

    You might be able to fake it, though, by putting the image into an Anchored Object at the start of the footnote.

    Anchored objects move with the text in which they are anchored. You can read all about them in the Help files.

    I'm afraid you need to do it for each one.
