I am having difficulty similar to the post here: goo.gl/JL7ik in that I cannot get my Chicago-style footnotes to properly export and/or compile into the Notes section where it says:
“Any footnotes you created in your paper will get inserted here upon Compile (this purple bubble will be removed automatically). If you don’t have any footnotes, you can deselect “Include in Compile” for this document in the Inspector or Compile settings, or just delete it completely.”
I’ve tried exporting and compiling to .doc, .docx, and .rtf and opening all in Word. I’ve tried several variations of converting footnotes to endnotes in the compiling options (including not clicking any option at all).
The best I can get is the footnotes to convert to endnotes but they are stuck in the Works Cited section with a line above them that I cannot remove. Also, some footnotes are in the Works Cited section as endnotes while some are still footnotes.
Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I am having the same problem:
“The best I can get is the footnotes to convert to endnotes but they are stuck in the Works Cited section with a line above them that I cannot remove. Also, some footnotes are in the Works Cited section as endnotes while some are still footnotes.”
I want all footnotes to be turned into endnotes (which I have done through the Compile window)… and to appear on the Notes page (and not as they presently do - underneath a line on the Works Cited page).
Anyone found a solution to this problem?
Thanks for any help.
Please download the latest beta from https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/scrivener-2-x-update-betas-download-here/11262/1 and then select “Flatten footnotes” in the “RTF Compatibility” pane of Compile.
The problem is that Scrivener’s .doc, .docx and .odt exporters got upgraded a while ago, allowing for real footnotes in these formats where real footnotes were only available before in RTF. But to have the footnotes placed in the “Notes” page, they need to be regular text rather than special footnote text, which means the upgrades broke this feature of the Chicago Style format when exporting to these formats (it should still work fine if you export to PDF or RTFD).
This is addressed in the next update (and the current beta) by allowing the user to choose to “flatten” the footnotes into regular text.
Hope that helps.
All the best,
