Footnotes from all text frames and tables on every page
My booklets almost always have a complex layout with some (2-5) tables with visible or invisible borders and (2-5) text frames on one page.
I need there a consistent numbering of footnotes at the end of the page or spread from all tables and text frames on that page (separate for every page). I.e. real footnotes for the whole page not for a single text frame.
A lot of people for sure have the same issue.
New endnotes feature in October 2017 update does not resolve the problem at all.
This input may be closely related to “Please make it possible to insert footnotes in Tables” as people voting for that topic may mean also this expanded issue.

I support the idea. Already when having two text frames on a page you have a problem getting numbers correctly. Say one text frame is sitting in the margin but needs a footnote. But it should appear in the main text block with all other footnotes.
The newest Quark XPress update addresses this issue excellently! Maybe it's time to leave Indesign for Quark. Here's what Quark has done:
Word Import enhanced — The Word import filter now supports explicit options to include/exclude Footnotes, Hyperlinks and Pictures. You can also import Footnotes as static text at the end of the story flow and import Word tables as native QuarkXPress tables.

@Adobe: Could you please update whether this can be fixed in InDesign quickly?
