Hey,

I lost all of a sudden some of my footnotes. I linked a word document and at first it worked fine. Today, I lost my first few footnotes, but the last few are still imported. 

I tried to reimport the word document, but it didnt change anything. In the editor window (cmd+y) they are also missing.

 

Can you help me?

Hey,

Thanks for your reply. I got it to work, after I exported the word document as an .rtf. This solved all the problems. But thanks for your help, it will help me next time I work with indesign.

 

Best regards

Confusing.  A linked Word document is not imported, it's just loaded. Also, where's the connection between the Word document and your foot notes?

Hi Luis,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing with InDesign. I would request if you could try creating a copy of the Word file and import into a new InDesign file and see how it goes.
Here is a video tutorial you may refer to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxfQCM86yjg


Let us know if this helps or if you have any further questions, we'd be glad to help.

 

Regards,

Srishti
