To get this right. You have opened the rtf file in a text editor,
found the relevant footnote in the text and seen that it is
positioned correctly. But when it is imported into FM8 it is moved to
a more or less random location to within 5 places of the original
If that is the case, this is a pretty serious problem. Much of the
work I do involves importing rtf files, mainly from Word.
