The issue is, both the Main body text and Footnote text, are coupled in a single text box. This is how InDesign treats Placed Word Docs w/ Footnotes. I tried also, with an InDesign file where the Footnotes have been converted in Word to Endnotes, as this creates an independent text box for the Endnotes. I change both text frame names in the layer panel, and ran the script—but this only produced a very small pop-up with a + and –
My only guess is that I’m possibly doing something wrong with the Inport setting from Word??
