I'm using InDesign CC 2017 and cannot get the split footnote across pages option to work. It's an MS Word document with long footnotes that I've placed in InDesign.
You can see if Type->Document Footnote options->Layout-> Allow Split footnote option help you out.
Yes, I have already tried this and turned it ON. It doesn't work.
If the "Allow Split Footnotes" option isn't working for you, then check the paragraph formatting settings for the footnotes.
If you've applied a paragraph style:
Else, click in the footnote paragraph that is not splitting, and from the Paragraph panel menu (Type > Paragraph), select Keep Options, and check the same settings as mentioned in step 2 above.
Can you share a screen shot or two of the InDesign spreads?
In order to have contiunous footnotes, the text boxes on must be linked.
(whether they are on the same spread, or different spreads, they must be linked.)
This simple fix resolved the issue for me, along with making sure the 'Allow Split Footnotes.' option is ticked.
Hope this helps
Something that worked for me was in the Footnote options > layout > de-select 'span footnotes across columns'
