I have a text with app. 2000 notes. I'd like to get this notes into four columns. Is it possible to create it???

I tried to apply settings for this, but it doesn’t work.  (InDesign 2020) On pdf notes in 4 columns are made manually.

Hi Zatar,

look into InDesign UserVoice. There must be some feature requests for exactly this.

Support the one you found or do your own. If done, please come back with a link so that everyone reading this thread could vote for it.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

My Footwork add-on (not free) will let you do footnotes in columns in InDesign.

If the book has many images and they are anchored, it will work fine.

If the images are not anchored, it is still helpful, but becomes only a semi-automatic process (as opposed to a fully automated layout).

Hi Zatar,

found this at UserVoice:

 

Add Inline footnotes and multi-column footnotes in a single-column story.
Robert Oleś shared this idea, August 09, 2017

I just gave it a vote.

 

Regards,

Спасибо. Но, к сожалению, эта ссылка почему-то не открывается. Скорее всего, мне придется использовать эту опцию. Footwork

Hi Zatar,

tested both links with Firefox on Windows 10.

No issue I can see. You may try this again.

What's your machine and browser?
