Description shmuelh 2004-03-18 06:47:08 UTC
When I imported the attached MS Word file with many footnotes, the footnote 
numbering in the imported document only made the first digit superscript, and 
left the other digits as regular script. Thus, for example, for footnote 243, 
only the digit "2" was superscripted.

Another probled - but not necessarily OO. One of the reasons I imported the 
document into OO was because I had deleted footnote 242 and MS Word refused to 
renumber, thus leaving me with 241 followed by 243. I hoped that OO would 
renumber automatically, but it left the same gap in numbers.

Finally - just noticed this: while the footnote numbers are consecutive, if you 
look in the text itself, footnote 11 repeats "11" for the next ten footnotes, 
and then changes to "22" for the next 10 numbers, and then to 33, 44, etc.

Sorry about the morbid content, but it's a book I'm editing on death, etc.

The footnote number (from the footnote area, not the anchor) has been deleted in
Word. This is not possible with OO Writer's footnote numbers. Thus it can't be
displayed correctly in Writer.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
