In the company we have a lot of juridical books with thousands of footnotes.
These kind of books mostly have +700 pages where the footnotes have to have a continuous numbering.
When you have a book file with for example 8 files, we have to set the footnote numbering manually if we want to have a continuous numbering.
Is there any option to have a continous footnote numbering thoughout a book file?
I hoped this (big) issue was solved in CC, but apparantly it isn't. Any tips/tricks?
Footnote numbering is not continued across documents in a book. This is an expected behavior and not a bug. Please see the section Footnote numbering and formatting options in this URL: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/indesign/cs/using/WSa285fff53dea4f8617383751001ea8cb3f-6f37a.h tml. Please see attached screen: However, if you have threaded text frames across your book documents, then Footnote numbering will continue.
Thanks. Each document of such book is 'fully threaded', so in the documents itself we have no problems.
It's just very dangerous to let each document start with a hard footnote number.
When we receive corrections from the client and he adds 1 footnote in the first file, we have to adjust all following files manually...
I'm afraid someone will forget it once.
Why can Adobe do it for page numbers and not for footnote numbers?
It's a bit the same in my opinion.
