Creating annotations and footnotes

You can add annotations and footnotes to your GROWI wiki. When you add an annotation, a footnote appears at the bottom of the page.

How to write annotations and footnotes

Using references

You can add a footer reference to a footnote using the notation [^#], where # is the footnote number, e.g. [^1], [^2], etc. You can add a footnote reference anywhere in the document you want. The corresponding footnote should be annotated using [^#]:, the same text but with a colon at the end.

You can write the annotation reference using plain English as well. For example, you could use an annotation like [^longnote]; the footnote would be annotated [^longnote]: (with a colon).

Both the reference [^1] and the annotation [^1]: must exist. If either one is not present, the other will not function as an annotation.

Inline annotations

You can add annotations inline using the Markdown code [^Add annotation text inline] (using your own annotation text).

When you use a text annotation, the footnote will automatically be assigned a numeric reference.

Writing long footnotes with paragraphs

If you would like to add a line break into your footnote, you can continue your footnote after the line break by adding an indentation to the beginning of the following paragraph.

Example

## annotations
When an annotation is set, its contents are expanded at the bottom of the page.
You can write a reference [^1] to the footnote.
You can also add an inline footnote ^[Add annotation text inline].
Long footnotes can be written like this[^longnote].
[^1]: A reference to the first footnote.
[^longnote]: This is an example of writing footnotes in multiple blocks.
    Subsequent paragraphs are indented and belong to the previous footnote.

When you create a GROWI page with the above Markdown text, the page created will look like the image below.
