I just updated to 2.2 and noticed mention in the changelog of footnote numbering in the inspector after compile. I guess this was added in 2.1, though I didn’t notice it then. I use Scrivener for academic work and always have a ton of footnotes, so I’m very happy about this feature (or, would be, if I could get it to work)!
Unfortunately, I don’t see any numbers appearing in the footnote inspector after I compile.
I wondered if it had to do with my project or compile settings, so I tried again with a blank project. I added some text to the draft, added some inspector footnotes to the text, and compiled to RTF (also tried PDF). In the footnote/annotations compile options I had all the boxes unchecked. I tried toggling the ‘prompt before updating footnote numbers’ option set in Format > Options - the prompt does show up on compile, I click yes, but nothing seems to change in inspector. No footnote numbering.
Am I doing something wrong? Missing some option somewhere?
