    The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – version 16.1

    Please update to this version to get the fix. To prevent problem on existing documents and see the footnotes again, you will have to force recompose the stories.
    To force recompose stories, you can use the shortcut Command-Option-/ (slash) on Mac or Ctrl-Alt-slash on Windows

    This is a joke at this stage. Adobe clearly don't care about fixing this issue.
    Does anyone know of a comparable publishing suite? So many other bugs popping up lately, disappearing pages when text is changed for example. Might be time to vote with my feet!

    This bug is still ongoing and is extremely serious. ID need to provide a warning and at the very least provide an update so that the preflight feature alerts you to the missing footnotes as an interim measure until a final fix is found. I have spoken to Adobe customer care on several occasions about this and I get one time fixes like adjust the page margins or change the document footnote options. But this IS NOT a permanent fix and still requires me to examine each and every footnote in a document manually. I work on books that have 10,000+ footnotes. A huge waste of time and money, and a huge risk to me and my clients if a book is printed with missing footnotes.

    I'm losing confidence in Adobe over this.
