If your mouse cursor does not go to the top of the Footnotes Pane in MS Word

When you open the Footnotes Pane in MS Word, the cursor goes to the top left corner and you are able to see as much as possible from the footnote text. This is not happening if you use a macro to open a larger footnotes pane. It this case the cursor goes to the bottom left corner!, and you can see just the first line of the footnote you are interested in. All the other space is wasted in displaying previous footnotes!

You can fix this problem by modifying TheFreeWindows’ Larger Footnotes Pane Macro. Just below the line: .SplitVertical = nPaneSize add these 3 lines:

Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=12
Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1

You can change the number 12 to match the size of the Footnotes Pane you have defined in the “Larger Footnotes Pane” macro.
