Footnotes: ability to cite multiple references to a footnote, with appropriate tagging for accessibility
Each new instance of a footnote added in InDesign gets a sequential number – but authors and copywriters expect to be able to insert multiple references to the same numbered footnote. For example, a bank might want to put a single asterisk against multiple references to ‘interest rate’, with one corresponding footnote at the end to explain what 'APR', or 'EAR' means. So I’d like a new feature to be added that would, at the point of inserting a footnote, give the option to cite an existing one that’s already in the document. In an exported accessible PDF, there would be more than one <Reference> tag, each containing the same number, with corresponding <Note> tags containing the same footnote text for each.
