Find & Replace in Footnotes

Not possible? I have 767 at current count, in non-fiction monster and it appears that there is no find + replace option that will access the footnotes. Am I missing something? :smiley:

I’m afraid you’re quite right; there isn’t a replace option currently that will affect inspector footnotes. We have this on the list, but until then my best suggestion would be to make a project backup, then try converting the footnotes to inline footnotes (Format > Convert) and running the replacement on the text. That won’t limit it to only footnotes, though, which might be a factor for you. You may have a simpler time running the replacement in Word or other word processor post-compile, when you’ll be able to confine the replacements to the footnote field.
