Hedley's suggestions for improving Frame's footnote handling are all very good ones, but the chances of them being implemented are nil, I think. Some of us have been complaining about FM's note handling for, oh, 14 years, and I have quite a collection of nice messages spanning that period from Frame Tech and Adobe, to the effect that yes, this is a popular request, and will certainly be considered.
It's been explained to me that getting footnotes to break properly across pages would be such a massive project involving such huge amounts of code re-writing that the entire population of India would need to get degrees in computer science. We are in the same ballpark as putting a man or woman on Mars, or curing the common cold, or building a working fusion reactor, or getting FM to run natively in OSX. For documents with relatively few footnotes, there's a manual workaround involving anchored frames and trial-and-error cutting and pasting. I have written up a description of it -- ask and ye shall be given. But Rob said >My latest document is 5,000 pages long [...] Ohmigod! Graeme
