> Dear members of the Scribus team,
>   I have a problem using Scribus 1.5, which already applies footnotes.

>   This document is an article of around 30 pages which contains around 100 footnotes.
>   When I load the document into Scribus, all the footnotes are transformed automatically

Hi Gudrun,

You are encountering two basic problems, the first one being the unfinished state of footnotes in 1.5.0. There are some improvements in the soon-to-be-released version 1.5.1, but the feature still won't work to your satisfaction in the next test version. The second problem is that our text import filters, including the new ones (XTG and RTF), don't reflect the new text features yet. Once all the rough edges in the new text features have been removed, it'll be possible to update the import filters.

For the time being, you have to resort to copy and paste endnotes into footnote frames.
