Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing footnotes from Word, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
When authoring a document many people prefer to create their footnotes in Word.…Thankfully, InDesign can import Word footnotes along with Word endnotes.…Let's see how this works.…So I'm in a blank document called place_footnotes. I'm going to go to the File menu and choose Place. Well, I'm going…to use this Word document 19THC_footnotes.doc and I want to make sure that I have this option checked, Show Import Options,…and in my Microsoft Word Import Options here are the essential checkboxes, Footnotes and Endnotes.…
When these are checked, InDesign is going to bring in the footnotes and endnotes from the Word document.…Well other options you have chosen is really going to depend upon what formatting you have applied in Word…and possibly, how that's going to map to any paragraph styles you have in your InDesign document.…I don't have any styles in this document so I'm going to just leave it at this for now.…But this is the crucial one in this context.…Click OK and then I'm going to Shift+click to autoflow that text where we see I've got my footnotes.…
