Hi everyone,

I seem to have a problem that has been discussed before, but there is no suitable answer with a real solution.

When importing (placing) a word file (.rtf), some of the notes are misplaced, namely the number of the footnote looks like a spuare with a pink highlight, while the text of the note is moved to the next footnote, misplacing the footnotes from their proper location.

Does anyone have a solution? Many have had this problem, but I couldn't find any real solutions.

I'm working with Creative Cloud and I still had to save the Word file down to import the complete set of endnotes. Thank you, Tim
