    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

    Any updates for a fix on this issue? It's a MAJOR issue that has been around for almost 1 year now. Being in academic publishing, footnotes are very important and can even lead to lawsuits if the source (as a footnote) of an image/figure doesn't show. There is no way to tell what triggers this issue and this is why it is very frustrating and of course risky. Indesign has been known to be very reliable throughout the years but this time it is the complete opposite.

    Someone needs to wake up at Adobe because we are all paying monthly for this app that is currently not working as expected. Furthermore, it is putting in danger the reputation of publishers that worked so hard to build up for many years.

    As I stated in an earlier post, we can help you by providing more than 40 files that are having this issue. We are ready to collaborate if you are ready to listen to your community.
