I tried searching all over, both the web and these forums with no luck.
When I compile a scrivener project with footnotes (as .rtf), then open it in Word (2008 for Mac), all the footnote numbers are superscript, justified to the left margin without indentation, with just a space between the number and the beginning of my note text.
A normal Chicago styled footnote, however, has the number at the same size as the rest of the text with a period after the number. My usual workflow on a shorter paper is to compile, select all the footnote text, de-superscript everything, indent the first lines, then go through one by one and add periods. This obviously can become tedious on a dissertation with hundreds of footnotes for which you may need to print out a draft every few weeks.
Is there a way to automatically style these in Scrivener’s compile process, or alternatively get Word to import them with the changes. Or, a third (possible?) option, a scripting method to edit the .rtf file before bringing it into Word?
