Hi,

This week for the third time a client asked me to deliver the final text of a book, from InDesign, into a Word-document.
Mostly no problem (save as PDF/X-4.0:2001 and then export to Word).
But those three book contain more then 100 footnotes (and/or endnotes).

Do you know if there is a solution for this? Or an extension?
I’ve looked but didn’t find anything at this moment.

I tried the Recosoft trial version, but it ignores all footnotes.

Hi Derek,

 

That's brilliant! Convert all endnotes to footnotes, export as RTF, wait a while and open the RTF-document in Word > all footnotes are there...

Thanks for the link!

Hi Paulusch,

if you are interested in a roundtrip workflow:

InDesign > Word > InDesign

look into Wordsflow by EM Software:

There is a 15-days trial period:
