Footnotes not compiling properly...

Greetings!

I am using Scrivener 2.3.1 to write my essay. When I compile my piece, the exported document either does not include footnotes at all (when I export as .rtf) or it includes the footnote content in the same line as my text (exported as .doc or .docx), rather than as a footnote or endnote.

HELP! I have tried a variety of settings to no avail.

Thank you in advance!

What program are you opening the file in? It sounds as though you are opening it in a program that doesn’t support footnotes (such as TextEdit). Be sure to open the file in a program with full support for footnotes such as Word or OpenOffice. (If you use Pages, be sure to use the .doc or .docx format, as Pages doesn’t support footnotes in RTF files.)

All the best,
Keith
