1. Insert Word 2019 footer for single paragraph
Word allows us to define a footnote for only a part of the content, this can be from a paragraph to the selection of a text.
For this it is advisable that the text to represent in the note is different from the others and this is achieved by selecting said paragraph and setting its font in italics, bold, etc:
This simply helps the reader to detect that this document has something special and stands out from the others. Once the paragraph is selected, we go to the References menu and in the group "Footnotes" we find the option "Insert note at the end" and the option "Insert footnotes" is available:
We click on "Insert footnote" and at the end of the page the option to enter the desired text referring to the selected paragraph will be activated:

By clicking there we can see that the note and its insertion style will be at the end of the document:
In this case of the notes at the end we will not see a traditional number, but it will be in Roman numerals.
We enter the desired text for the note at the end. At this point it is important to clarify that it is possible to use both types of notes (at the foot and at the end) in the same Word file.
