    Word document footnotes will not import into InDesign

    The Patina Level 1

      Hi All


      I have what appears to be a perfectly valid Word doc with footnotes on board (about 240 of them).


      When I try to import it into InDesign, even though both the footnote and endnote import options are checked, the Word document imports with no sign of the footnotes at all (ie: neither the in-body marker, or the both itself).


      I've gone back to the Word doc and tried converting all the footnotes to endnotes and importing that. Same issue.


      And yet other Word docs I've received have imported without issues for either footnotes or endnotes.


      Any suggestions?
