Apply the same footnote multiple times

Post by jhanna » Wed Oct 14, 2020 8:39 pm

Hello,

When applying the same footnote to more than one element, the footnote text gets duplicated and the footnote reference number is different. Here is an example produced using PDF Chemistry:

DITA

Code: Select all

        <ol>
            <li>Item 1<xref href="#topic_qzf_r1h_3nb/first-footnote" type="fn"/><fn
                    id="first-footnote">Here is a footnote.</fn></li>
            <li>Item 2</li>
            <li>Item 3<xref href="#topic_qzf_r1h_3nb/first-footnote" type="fn"/></li>
            <li>Item 4</li>
        </ol>
PDF Chemistry Output
footnote_output.png
footnote_output.png (10.28 KiB) Viewed 113 times
The following is what I would expect to be the result:
footnote_expected.png
footnote_expected.png (7.72 KiB) Viewed 113 times
Basically, I'm expecting the same output provided as the "use-by-reference" example provided in the DITA spec for footnotes:

Please consider adding this support to Oxygen and Chemistry.

Thank you,
Jonathan

Hello Jonathan,

This problem has already been fixed and will be available starting with the new release of Oxygen PDF Chemistry.
It will be included in the new version of Oxygen (23.0 - release soon)

Regards,
Julien
