I am working on document in Word 2007. Two things: When I enter a footnote the note number at bottom of page is not in superscript font, but in normal font. How to set it so that all numbers will automatically appear in superscript?

How to set it so that words will not be broken to two with hyphen at the end of lines?

Go to Home - Styles.
Click on the small arrow at the bottom-right hand corner of the styles section.
A new Styles pane should appear.
At the bottom of this new pane is a button called "Managed Styles". Click it.
Click on the style "Footnote Reference". Click on "Modify".
Click on Format - Font.
Check "Superscript".
Close all the dialog boxes.

Page Layout - Hyphenation - None (or have a look at the Options).

Thanks for the Hyphenation advice. It worked. With regard to the footnote font, I clicked little arrow on bottom right of Styles menu. It opened a pane which listed 'clear all', 'normal,  'no spacing', 'title', 'subtitle', 'strong', 'quote',, BUT NO 'Managed Styles'. I must be doing something wrong.  There is an options button which opens a window titled: Style Pane Options'. But no reference here to 'managed styles'.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you are using the default Normal template which by default is the first style under |Home| and |styles| right click to modify and then go to format and choose |font| and make choices accordingly.
