Footnotes support in IDML import

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

After buying Affinity suite the other day I was happy that footnotes etc was added to version2.  I cannot use Adobe InDesign anymore and my CS6 version does not work on the Mac OS Big Sur upgrade I did to enable me to purchase Affinity.  I was able to import all footnotes through MS Word no problem, but all update were made in Adobe InDesign, so spelling and grammar adjustments are lost and have to be done in the word file. Layouts done in past projects I did for clients and brought into Affinity by importing the IDML files has left me with a sour taste in my mouth.  Footnotes do not come along with the rest of the text and text styles into Affinity Publisher at all.  This is bad.  This is the very reason we are making the transition away from Adobe and being able to bring projects into Affinity if there are future updates to books etc that need us to open the original layouts within Affinity.

Please, please, please Affinity, update the IDML import ability to enable footnotes, endnotes etc to be intact and into Affinity and bring it up to scratch.  This is very important.

Currently, the only way would be to import the IDML in Apub to get the format; then, to export the text with footnotes from ID to Word; then, to import the Word file in Apub with footontes.

Anyhow, Affinity must support footnotes/endnotes (and, later, index entries) in IDML import.
