Description boardquake 2005-07-25 23:01:32 UTC
When clicking to select sentence, the footnote anchor belonging to the previous
sentence is also selected.

For example, this sentence ends with a footnote.123 This is the new sentence.
When clicking to select new sentence, the selection begins with "123 This is..."

Reassigned to SBA.
Comment 2 eric.savary 2005-07-26 09:38:09 UTC
In your example, the footnote is part of the second sentence because it is after
the period.
|First sentence here|.1 Second sentence here.|

So there is no defect here.

Don't be so dismissive: There may not be a "defect", but it's a feature problem.

In the academic world, the footnote anchor generally comes after the period --
and it belongs to the first sentence.
If I want to edit academic text (e.g., a journal article) and move sentences
around, I run into trouble becuase Writer considers the footnote part of the
second sentence.

Please reconsider.

I know, it may make sense for some special uses as yours but untill now a
sentence is still delimited by 2 periods and so works the Writer.

Let's see what others think about this but I don't think it has a chance to be
