Endnotes Returning -1 Instead of Number

I thought I successfully converted all 44 footnotes to endnotes, however, 7 of the 44 show "-1" instead of the proper/sequential number. Anyone see this before, and if so, know a fix? Appreciate it.

Hi Karnal,

you tagged your post with EPUB. Do you see the -1 in an exported EPUB or already on your InDesign page?

What's your exact version of InDesign and operating system?

 

Can you make a version of the document available through Dropbox or a similar service before you converted the footnotes? If yes, just post a download link.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Hi Uwe,

Since all of the endnotes are buried in the single text frame, I can't see them in InDesign.  I see them in the exported EPUB, both in the popup and the endnotes page.

 

New to InDesign, so not sure how to make all of the endnotes visible, to potential edit.

 

Thanks,

Kamal

Also, I selected text in the Endnote page and reduced the font, making more notes visible.  For example, I can see, 22, 23, 24, but when click on the link in previewer, each of those endnotes displays a -1 in the popup and endnote page.
