    Footnote Numbering Problems InDesign CS6

    Bronwyn Mondoux

      Hey Folks,


      Having an issue I can't seem to figure out. I am laying out a book with a bunch of references and footnotes. When I insert the first footnote, all works well and good, as long as I am referencing things on the same page. As soon as I move on to a second page with footnotes, the numbers restart themselves.


      So on page one, I have footnotes 1,2,3. In the footnotes textbox, they are properly referenced as 1, 2 and 3. On page two, I have footnotes 4 and 5. When I "insert footnote", the textbox at the bottom restarts at 1, giving me footnotes 1 and 2 instead of 4 and 5.


      In the footnote options, "Restart Numbers Every" is NOT selected. I tried everything, but to no avail.

      I am pretty new with inDesign, so any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
