I have a MS Word document that I have been trying to place into inDesign CC2015
Regardless of whether I format the notes as footnotes or endnotes, they do not appear
in the document when placed into inDesign.
After looking repeatedly online for a solution and have only found others complaining about this problem.
This is a significant problem. This document has over 1200 footnotes, so entering them manually,
as I have done in the past as a work around is really not an option.
Save the file in MS Word as DOC, not as DOCX and import that.
And make sure you have triggered or checked Show Import Options so that you can turn on the import of footnotes, if you haven't already done so.
