Using the latest InDesign 16.2.1, I am doing the layout for a document with lots of reference citations embedded in the text.
I am not sure whether to try to do everything manually (superscript number in text / short citation at the page bottom / full bibliography at the document end), or use either the Footnotes feature or Endnotes feature? What works best?
I have two concerns: problems I have heard mentioned.
1. Some of the references repeat. For example Smith 2021 which has the superscript number of 7 when it first appears on page 2, followed by 8, 9, 10 citations. But then Smith 2021 is cited again later in the document, say page 19. How is that done without screwing up the automatic sequencing?
2. If during the editing process of this document already full of sequential superscript numbers, I need to insert a new citation in the middle of the document. Will the superscript sequencing recalibrate?
