    Footnotes in Tables in Version 14 is good. But they do not suit needs of all of us!
    I need footnotes from the whole page from different Textboxes / Tables at the end of the page.
    There should be an option for an extra textbox with footnotes from the whole page.
    It is still not possible.

    As mentioned before it should be possible to have the footnote just under the table – or even better and logically: in the footer of the table.
    It's not useful to have the table footnote at the bottom of the textframe where the table is placed.

    @Rainer Klute,
    Table footnotees can be just insert after the table.
    the Thing in the beta is the right one mostly needed.

    Sorry Abhinav, but "insert footnotes in (sic!) tables" is NOT "available in beta builds".

    What I see there is that the footnote text is added to the regular footnotes section on the page but not directly under the table. There is no use at all for this solution. Please take it away from the next release and rebuild it.

    as far as i can see the beta does not solve the standard needs for table footnotes, e.g.
    – notes belobe/above table
    – separate numbering/styling per table / tablestyle

    Please add real table footnotes to give users real advantage of this new feature. Otherwise you can call it "NEW" but it will be needless.

    Thanks a lot for you efforts!

    Please give both options, one option where the entire Document including tables and boxes have a continuing numbering, then you can provide a "start new numbering" option like with lists for those who want different numbering within tables and boxes.

    Also, is there a way to make this consistent across book files, maybe it already exists and I am not aware of it.

    please give us a solution. I loose hours to solve this problem.
    Microsoft Word does this smoothly. I thought Adobe was the best...

    PLEASE do it finally, I am surprised there are only 13 comments, it is so frustrating to create invisible footnotes just to make the numbering consistent :(
