Add Footnotes with Vellum 3.7

Vellum 3.7 is now available, and brings a much-requested feature: footnotes!

Footnotes in Print

In your print edition, footnotes appear at the bottom of each page, and are indicated by your choice of symbols, numbers, and more. You can include footnotes in the Word file you import, or add them right in Vellum.

Footnotes in Ebooks

Footnotes aren’t just for print! In your ebook, they’ll appear as popups, which readers can view without leaving the page. Vellum automatically creates popups for every supported platform, and you can visualize them right in Vellum’s Preview.

Footnotes + Endnotes

Working on a book that needs footnotes and endnotes? You can combine them both, using your choice of indicators for each type of note.
