In the latest Beta, when compiling to .docx or rtf the footnotes are sent as endnotes and the footnote marker does not actually link to the citation.
Not saying it’s not happening to you, but with my manuscript, footnotes compile correctly in v25, as with earlier versions.
Correctly, except for that annoying “*” before the footnote number, inside the text. That’s still present.
Please, check your Footnotes & Comments compile format settings.
