[to the devels or testers] Anyone can dig into this? If this statement is
confirmed, it's strange.

Now, if there was some way to keep those footnotes on the correct page.  The

Hi David,

The only workaround I know for footnotes is to create a text frame below the
main text frame and place the footnotes there, manually, on each page. This
has always been a nightmare in DTP. I cannot tell if Adobe people came up
with a nicer solution. To the best of my knowledge, Quark 6.5 doesn't handle
footnotes in a better way and maybe 7.x has something to offer...

Let us know.



Thanks again,
