    renumbering footnotes in each chapter in indesign cc 2014

    Zareeba

      I recently imported a Word document comprising a book into InDesign CC 2014. All the footnotes transferred over correctly, but when I try to make the numbering restart at the beginning of each Chapter, nothing happens. Can anyone help?

          You can:

           

          (1) Divide each chapter into a separate story (i.e., break the text

          thread between the end of the last chapter and the new chapter). Then

          your footnotes will begin at 1 for each chatper. This is what I would

          recommend.

           

          (2) Assign a new section in the pages palette at the beginning of each

          chatper, and set your footnote numbering to restart with each section.

          The disadvantage of this is that if your text reflows, the sections

          won't be in the right place any more.

            I tried to assign a new section but no matter what I try the footnote numbering stays the same. It worked with InDesign CS6 (which is what I used with the last book I designed) but not with CC 2014. Any ideas?

             

            And if I try the alternative, how do I break the text thread?
