Isn't it about time you fixed this problem? I've been having to work around this issue for close to two years now; before then, there was no problem. Can't you just restore that option?

I’m sorry, but this problem is not fixed. The imported endnotes references are still not in superscript and they are not associated with a character style; see my posting of 15 October 2018. Your colleague Ravi Kiran said he was looking into the problem on 21 October but has not provided a solution until now. I am using ID CC 14.0.1 x64 (German); as far as I can tell, this is the present version. This has been a problem since 2017! Please help!
I was thrilled to find out that the newest update of InDesign (14.0 x64) gives me the possibility to import the endnotes as static endnotes. HOWEVER: the references in the text are no longer in superscript and no longer have a character style, which means I have to go through the document, find 100s of notes and format them manually, hoping I don't format the wrong numbers. This is no satisfactory solution. Can you fix this?
Until then, I guess that means back to Peter Kahrel. Why is this so difficult for you? It used to work just fine.
In case this helps anybody: At present, I can only help myself by making sure that the Word document has footnotes (not endnotes), and and after placing it in Indesign use Peter Kahrel's foot_to_end_dynamic.jsx script; then I have to change bullets to text, and then delete cross references. At this point I’m where I was in InDesign CC 2017, when I simply placed a Word document with endnotes in InDesign. I hope somebody at Adobe comes up with a fix soon.Thomas Stark shared this idea ·
