Try to re-save word file to Word 2003, and re-import to InDesign

Weird, as far as I can see the regular text Find/Change ought have worked. Can you try again with a GREP search? Look for \~F and change to ~F.
If that doesn't work either (which would strongly suggest a newly introducted bug!), copy a correct footnote number code, and see if "Replace with Clipboard Contents" works, in either regular Text or GREP Find/Change.
Hi, very nice your idea.
Thought only Wordsflow was fine to export InDesign.
Althought the text gets a little crazy the footnotes got resolved.
We have to accept Jongware's idea.
Yes, it was like a mozartian cadence.
Glad to be of help!
As far as I can see, your own attempt and the GREP ought to have worked, so it really smells like a new bug. Best report it to Adobe, and refer to this thread, in the Feature Request/Bug Report Form.
glad this issue is solved for you.
Thanks to Jongware. :-)
Just wanted to know, if the InDesign document you recieved was a converted one from a legacy version.
What is your version of InDesign on what OS?
We have ID 2017 22.214.171.124 build
OS Sierra 10.12.4.
Yes, it was converted from a prior version.
ah. I suspected that.
Did you read out the history of the document?
It would be interesting to know if the doc went to numerous changes in versions and platfoms.
Maybe it was corrupted that way…
