Hi Matthew,

Thanks for sending the files separately. I’ve had a look, and everything seems in order.

You need to renumber the footnotes, and select “Restart every page”. To do this, in Footwork:

(1) Click on the Check GREPs button.

(2) Select the first footnote in the list, and click on the Renumber button at the bottom of the window.

(3) In the Renumber dialog that opens, check the “Restart numbering every:” option, and select “Page” from the dropdown, and finally click the “Renumber” button to perform the action.

This will make sure that the first footnote in the main text on each page is numbered 1.

However, I did notice in the file that some of the footnotes are not on the same page as their references in the main text. To fix this you should recompose the file. In fact, it’s probably worth recomposing the file before renumbering the footnotes, as after recomposing, the location of the footnotes might change and what was the first footnote on the page might not be the first footnote any longer.

Does that make sense?
