I need to inverse footnote reference numbers and punctuation. Does anyone know how to identify the footnote reference with Regex? InDesign uses ~F, but that's not working in FrameMaker.

I'm not sure that I understand your requirement... In FrameMaker the footnote numbering properties are managed through the Document Numbering Properties dialog. You can't use Regex to find and change footnotes.
I am trying to write a query that will locate a footnote followed by either a comma or period. If I can find that pattern, then I can pick them up and pop them back down the opposite order. Maybe you are correct we can’t do this in Fm yet, but I can use regular expressions in InDesign to do it, and I feel like I saw something last week about how to reference a footnote outside of InDesign. I just can’t find it now that I want it, of course!
I understand now Barb.
I would probably write a short ExtendScript to do that sort of thing if it was likely to be worthwhile. The FrameMaker Regex functionality for search and replace is just a basic implementation of the Perl syntax. Although that can be changed in maker.ini. It has no FrameMaker specific extensions that I'm aware of.
I didn't want to mark this as correct because I was hoping someone, somewhere would have different answer, Ian, but I guess not.
If it's not already there perhaps you should add Regex enhancement as a feature request. If possible following the same convention that we see in InDesign... I would vote for it.
