How can we improve InDesign?

Continuous numbering of footnotes and endnotes; endnotes to separate chapter

PLEASE add these features to the footnote and endnote functionality of InDesign:
- Continuous numbering of footnotes and endnotes throughout the various indd files within a book document
- Ability to put the endnotes of the different indd files within a book document in a separate .indd file at the end of the book; numbering continuous OR per chapter.

        Absolutely necessary for book and journal publishers. We had been using Editorium but it no longer works with our state network enterprise system.

        Agreed – this is essential for book publishers working on InDesign. If it is clever enough to import multiple word files to flow with separate frames, then it should be able to recognise the files as having separate endnotes and renumber by chapter rather than from 1–end.
