Trouble is Abhinav, that you - Adobe - took so so long to fix something - that was not even broken in the first place. No apology, no understanding.
Next time you introduce a new feature, it should be fully tested before being released, this 'dynamic' note thing was not.Anonymous commented
It is a disaster for me!! I regularly set books with multiple chapters, and these notes to start at 1 for each chapter. Also I will often put all notes, index, bibliography etc, in a different document, so that I can typeset on a different baseline grid. The new dynamic notes, both foot and end, simply don't allow any flexibility. If one deletes the notes, the in text reference goes too!! Making the programme more like Microsoft Word is a very retrograde step. Am sure the best intentions were meant, but the testing has been very poor.
It has to be said that even the new version does not work well - the superior numerals are confused and some do not appear in the right position, and sometimes random numbers appear
It really does need an ON/Off toggle here, so the enduser has the chance to do what they want with the text.Anonymous supported this idea ·
