Hi, Is there a way, a script, any opportunity of placing the footnotes at the bottom of the text frame in half width of it, and keeping the main text flowing near the footnote's frame while doing this -except manual work- ? (please check the attached image)
I have tried Sidenotes script (Thanks to Mr. Peter Kahrel - http://www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/sidenotes.html -) unfortunately couldn't make "sidenotes_add.jsx" work (only 2nd parameter works for me). I was thinking of seperating the footnotes in a single text frame with an object style that anchors it to the bottom side of the main text frame. Was thinking of having two object styles and choosing from them respectively according to the side it should be.
Any kind of help is appreciated.
The sidenotes script isn't going to work because the notes are in anchored frames, and text wrap doesn't work with anchored frames (not always and not reliably, anyway). But the script to span footnotes across columns should work for you. As it is, it places notes in a separate frame at the foot of the page, spanning the columns. All you need to do is resize those frames. (see http://www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/footnotes_columns.html)
Thank you Mr. Kahrel,
I wasn't expecting an answer this fast and especially from you.
I had used this script before and looking for a more automated way of doing this. I was considering using it if I wasn't able to find a better solution. It seems the best method for doing this layout is with using this script. Thanks again.
