Pack short notes feature makes footnotes appear on top of each other


Recommended Posts

Update 2.3.0.2139 Windows

Pack short notes feature makes footnotes appear on top of each other

Note position: Bottom of Column

Min gap before 3 pt

Gap between 0 pt

Initial advances Leading

Min advance 11 pt

Allow split notes, either on or off

Some of the footnotes appear on top of each other. 

Seems also to corrupt memory, as after running I have Windows explorer memory access errors and runtime errors never seen before.

Version 2.2.1 does not have this problem.

Hi @TEWilk,

Could you upload a sample document demonstrating the issue you're seeing with 'Pack short notes' appearing on top of each other so we can take a look at what may be causing the issue...

File that exhibits the footnotes appearing on top of each other. 

This is made with Affinity Publisher 2.2.1, Windows 11

Font is Adobe Minion Pro

When loaded with the latest Beta it exhibit the problem. 

There is already another, probably unrelated, footnote problem in version 2.2.1

There used to be a footnote between note 16 and the present 17, on top of page 9, right after deducido". This footnote made all the footnotes on page 8, that is 12 through 16 disappear, although the space they take up was still there and left blank.

PDF files illustrating the footnotes problem in SP-Teosofia-2.afpub

2.2.1 Disappearing footnotes before - Shows the blank area when the footnote is at the top of next page

2.2.1 Disappearing footnotes after, - Shows the footnotes at the bottom of p. 8 coming back when the first footnote on top of p. 9 is removed

2.3.0.2139 (Beta) overprinted notes examp 1 - 4 - shows all the page spreads where there is the problem of overprinted footnotes in the Beta with packed notes turned on.

Hi @TEWilk,

This appears to be a new bug in the 2.3.0.2139 (Beta) relating to Note Positioning when there are individual multi-line Footnotes. It's not specific to your document, I'm seeing the same behaviour with a new document as well...

There are still quite a few issues with Notes, certainly with disappearing Packed Footnotes as referenced in this thread... Someone from the Moderation team will hopefully log this accordingly...
