Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with footnotes, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
Working with footnotes is always a bit of a tricky business.…They can be a little bit problematic in InDesign, but InDesign's footnote feature is relatively robust now and capable…of handling most people's footnote requirements.…However, what it doesn't do is endnotes, but we will see a few workarounds to get around that problem.…First of all, I want to cover the basic footnote options, I'm going to do this fairly briefly…since these have been covered elsewhere in the lynda.com training library especially…by David Blatner in his Beyond the Basics title.…
So I don't want to repeat too much what he said, but let us just take a quick look at those options.…So here we have a thesis document with some footnotes.…This began it's life as a Microsoft Word document and the footnotes were entered there and then when placed in InDesign,…InDesign recognized them as such and formatting has been applied to them in InDesign.…So if we come up in to the Type menu and look at Document Footnote Options here is…where we determine what our footnotes look like and how they behave.…
