Hello Barbara,

Do you know if it is possible to remove line breaks in the footnotes so the footnotes can appear in a single paragraph instead of separate paragraphs? I'd like to save space on each page (the book is heavily footnoted!) and format the footnotes so that each one is a “sentence”

Thank you for any suggestions or help you can provide.

Sincere regards,

Barb Binder, ACI

Hi Jacquo. No, as far as I know, the footnotes need to have the hard return at the end of each note. What if you run them as endnotes in the back of the document? That’s not an actual FrameMaker feature, so you could format them anyway you like.


I am using FrameMaker 9, Unstructured.

I am trying to insert multiple cross-references to a table footnote according to the FrameMaker instructions (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FrameMaker/9.0/Using/WS6C3D24E6-2965-48bb-B6CF-50D1439AEB01.html#WSd817046a44e105e21e63e3d11ab7f7561e-7f55). However, after I insert the cross-reference, the footnote symbol does not appear (i.e., no cross-reference text has been inserted). Here is the definition of the footnote symbol that I am using:

Do you know of any reason why I am unable to insert cross-references to table footnotes?


Here is the definition of the footnote symbol that I am using (minus the essential left arrow and right arrow characters, which are apparently read as code by your blog's software):

Great question, Michael. I just wrote up the answer for the FrameMaker column for next week's Skills & Drills newsletter. If you just can't wait, drop me a line at [email protected] and I'll be glad to forward the PDF.
