Hi,

 

After I import a text file, some footnotes disappear (not all of them). 

InDesign changed them in ^n or ^a.

 

A solution ?

Thx !

Hi,

Can you confirm the exact version of your software and operating system.

Can you describe how the footnotes were originally created, is there a difference between the ones appearing and the ones that do not?

Sure !

InDesign 2019, 14.0.3 x64 - using it in university, on PC, Windows 10. 

I created this footnotes few years ago, using Word, ctrl+alt+B. 

I do not see any difference between footnotes, this is why my head is cracking !

 

Thx
