Hi, Thanks for this. You have
[fn:1] footdef1[fn:2] [fn:2] footdef2 What do you expect to see in ODT? Presumably not a footnote in a footnote, since LibreOffice doesn't allow you to place one. An ODT cross-reference to the footnote? That makes sense, but should that be achieved by footnoting inside a footnote, or is the appropriate thing to do to use a dedicated target and link? [fn:1] footdef1, see also [[thatotherfootnote]]. [fn:2] <<thatotherfootnote>>footdef2 That seems to works nicely e.g. in HTML export. But I get an error message when I try it in ODT export (OpenDocument export failed: number-or-marker-p, nil -- can't be more detailed at the moment because my debugger doesn't seem to work correctly). So either way, there seems to be something that needs fixing. Yours, Christian Vaidheeswaran writes: > The attached file, when exported to ODT fails to open in LibreOffice > exporter.
