I have a really big book with thousands of footnotes, and in the word document every one of them has a space before the footnote reference in the text which needs to be removed. Has anybody any ideas how to do this? --- really hope so
When you say "space before" you mean space that precedes the footnote reference correct? I ask because there's a "space before" feature in InDesign that adds space above a paragraph. If what you desire is to remove the space that precedes the footnote reference, you can use Find/Change to remove it.
Assuming you have placed the word docx text into InDesign:
InDesign Edit menu > Find/Change to the rescue!
In a GREP search:
Find What: \s(?=~F)
Change to: nothing in this field
brilliant Vinny, big thank you
Thank you,\s(?=~F) worked for me.
