Delete a word that a footnote is linked to

When I am revising my text, I sometimes want to change the last word in a sentence to which a footnote is attached. I can’t figure out how to erase or change that word and still leave the footnote intact. Is there any way to do this without copying the existing footnote and then creating another note and pasting it in? That’s a lot of work and I revise a lot.

Unfortunately no, there’s not yet a quick way to move the footnotes. This is something we’re aware of and have plans to address. For now, if you’re changing the word rather than just cutting the end of the sentence entirely, you might find it easier to begin typing in the current anchor text, adding the new word so that it is part of the anchor, and then deleting the unwanted letters afterward.
