    How may I change footnotes position in Indesign CS6?

    mrmister1 Level 1

      Hi, I'm having a problem with Indesign CS6, the problem is I like to compose my page using text frames, so basically I can have 3 or 4 or even 5 different text frames in my page. Then, I need to add footnotes, but, indesign is placing me the footnotes at the bottom of its text frame. Well, I don't want that, because perhaps that particular text frame is not close to the bottom of the page, and what I want is all footnotes go (lie) to the bottom of the page. I don't know if you understood me well? if I did not explain this well, please tell me, and I will try to explain it again.

      So imagine I have a text frame that is in the center of page, and is not touching the bottom of the page. I have more frame texts along the page, and when I try to insert a footnote indesign fix, glue, that footnote to its text frame, and don't give me freedom to select other position where I can place the footnotes. Perhaps I want them to the side of the page, or perhaps to the bottom in the right side... I cannot do that, or at least, I don't know how to do that.

      Please, could you tell me how may I change the footnotes position when they are created in text frames? The footnotes seems to be grouped to the text frame (although they are not), and basically I cannot move the footnotes position to other arbitrary position I want.

      Any idea about how may I do this?

      Cheers
