Disappearing footnotes on export
Since updating to the latest major release of InDesign (14), we have been experiencing issues in one of our templates where footnotes have been disappearing from chapters (documents) in a Book when exporting the Book as a PDF.
This was not an issue in previous versions of InDesign and the template has not changed.
Is this perhaps a bug?
Thanks for reporting. We are reviewing the bug
This is still happening. I have had to export as separate chapters because the fault lies squarely with the Book export.

This bug is still around in CC 2020 15.02
Extremely dangerous if you loose information before print.
If you look to this analysis it looks like a broken recompose.
We have the same problem here, indesign 15.0.1… Mac OS 10.15.3

same here, indesign 14.0.3.
I have this same issue using Indesign 14.0.3. The Footnote in the text is there, but the footnote disappears. I've found if I insert the FN, the reference reappears.
