The following restrictions apply to footnotes:

  • The default maximum footnote index for both column and page footnotes is 999. Once the maximum is reached the footnote index cycles back to 1. Use the <note-properties/> directive when you need to reset the footnote numbering sequence or redefine the maximum footnote index.

  • Footnotes can not be referenced from within fixed blocks, floats, or any other note type, including another footnote.

  • The use of table row splitting, breakable boxes, floats or any other note type within a page or column footnote is not supported.
