Description Paul Unger 2019-01-13 16:19:41 UTC
When I hover over a footnote marker in Writer I get a pop-up that shows the content of the footnote. Very nice! When I export to PDF, all I get when I hover over a footnote marker is a page number reference... Writer is smart enough to process the page number that the footnote appears on for export to PDF, so it should be able to process the actual content of the footnote, no? I'd rather get the footnote content; the page number is redundant and embarrassing. So if this request is not possible, at the very least it would be nice to strip out the hover-to-show-page-number. [Yes, I think it's that bad... :-( ] Thanks for any help with this!
