A bit more complicated since you have 'double' footnotes, and, possibly, not always?
Maybe in two steps?
First - remove unwanted period after footnote:
Then insert period before footnote (or just before first one in a pair):
UPDATE. Just for the record: everywhere above the written 'footnotes' should be read as 'Footnote Reference Markers'.
Sometimes (too) short words may lead to misconception...
Thank you so much for trying to help.
Unfortunately they aren't 'Footnote Reference Markers' but just orange superior numbers...
So your trics didn't work and I still haven't found a solution...
Surely not with a simple Grep code!
~F(,~F)*[,;.?!…] if you play with "true" footnote calls!
\d+(,\d+)*[,;.?!…] if you play with "false" note calls!
In the first case, don't try! … To play it, you'll need a script!
In the second one, euh! … Well! you'll need the same script! [more simple to explain! ]
Of course, in the 2 cases, just enter the first or second Grep code into the first form ["Find:"] of the Find/Replace InDesign window …
… and just 1 click for launching the script!

Well, I still believe, it’s possible using GREP... with some assuming, and in three steps. Unfortunately, GREP has some limitation/feature/bug we need to 'hack’. Also it’s a good idea to create special Character style for your numbs (if you haven’t the one already).
So, here’s our initial text:
We’ll need two additional glyphs that are NOT used anywhere in the text. I’ll use:
broken bar: ¦
Find format: color: Orange
color: [Black] + position: normal
Here goes the main trick:
Don’t forget to trash Find and Change formats before running this!
Character Style: my orange numbs
More funny with real footnotes!
Thank you, thank you! I needed to fiddle a little bit with it but it worked, it WORKED!!!! You made my day, Thank you so much!!!
you're welcome, glad to help
GREP has even more fun, whatever
Dear Obi-wan Kenobi, I tried your solution too, but cannot see what you mean by "… and just 1 click for launching the script!". Am blond. Cannot find script.
Sorry but you're being spoofed by Obi-wan. He wants to sell you his script.
Not at all! I just indicate that if you want to simply do it in 1 click, you'll need a script!
