Notes not displaying in imported documents

Recently I am finding that when I import a Word document with footnotes or endnotes into Scrivener, many of the notes disappear. I’m not sure when this started happening, but it has been going on for several months. Has anyone else noticed this? (I’m using the latest versions of Scrivener and Catalina.)

On a related note :wink: , notes used to be automatically converted to inline footnotes on import (which I prefer), but now they appear as Inspector footnotes. Is there some setting that I may have inadvertently changed?

If you export the Word document as an RTF file and then import that into Scrivener instead, do you get a better result?

As for your second issue: go in under Scrivener > Preferences > Sharing > Import and make sure you have the “Import footnotes and endnotes as inline footnotes” setting enabled.

Yes, all the notes are now included.

Thank you, that solved the problem. I had to reinstall Scrivener some months ago and obviously forgot to check this setting.
