Hi.
I'm working on a file that contains a text with footnotes.
I'm interested to have 3 footnotes in a row. I'm doing so by the following instruction:

Click in the second footnote, and change the leading of that paragraph to zero and the left-hand indent value to 50mm.

However, for the third footnote this cannot be done , since it is located 1 mm under the former two footnotes.

How does it can be done?
Thanks in advance!

... Very interesting technique! So it works for 2 but not for 3? You can baseline-shift that leftmost note to align it with the others. If you are using separate styles to indent these notes, add the baseline shift in there as well.

Thank you!

Can you please elaborate on how I technically do this baseline-shifting?

It is actually called "Baseline shift", in the Character panel, Control Bar, and Character and Paragraph styles. So you would apply it by entering a value other than the default "0", like indents and point size and such.

I use a different technique of placing endnotes at the foot of the page. I made a video outlining the process. It’s partially manual, but I have used it in many books. I have then used custom scripts to make the process more automatic when warranted: (1) A Partial Solution to Run-in Footnotes - YouTube
