The main problem is not in figuring out how to make the missing footnote appear again. The main problem is that we DON'T KNOW that a footnote went missing in the first place! It disappears without warning, behind the scenes, pages away from where you are at the moment, sometimes without any text reflow to alert you. Preflight shows no text overflow.
We've lost confidence in the integrity of the files we are sending to the printer. And some of these files have thousands of footnotes.
Can you still say what you said in your update, that the issue has been fixed? What does it mean for older files? Any older files? We have a lot of older files. Does it mean that ANY time we open an older file, a footnote may disappear somewhere in the book? To say that this is disconcerting or even alarming would be somewhat of an understatement.
