how can I change the line for the footnote in word

When I insert a foot note, the line comes above it goes to the lift and its
long is very short, how can I extend the line long and how to change the
insertion from right to left?
another problem in one case happened that when I insert a footnote another
long line comes in the next page and I cant delete it. I tried to delete it
with borders and shadings but it can't be.

Re: how can I change the line for the footnote in word

You need to change the settings for the footnote and footnote continuation
separators:

Word 2007: View tab | Draft. References tab | Show Notes.

Word 97-2003: View | Normal. View | Footnotes.

Word displays the footnote pane. In the Footnotes box, choose "Footnote
separator." To make this line longer, you can copy it and paste in a second
line. Press Ctrl+R to make it right-aligned. Note that you can delete the
separator and replace it with a paragraph border if you want to.

To delete the footnote continuation separator, just choose "Footnote
Continuation Separator" in the Footnotes box, select it, and press Delete.

You could also copy the Footnote Continuation Separator and paste it in as
the Footnote Separator if you wanted a continuous line.

Re: how can I change the line for the footnote in word

Good idea. Using a copy of the footnote continuation separator is, by far,
the easiest way to get a margin-to-margin line.
