Footnote splitting

By default, the maximum depth of a column footnote can not exceed the depth of the data block in which the footnote is referenced, and the maximum depth of a page footnote cannot exceed the depth of the page footnote region.

Footnotes that exceed the depth of a column or page can be split across a column boundary or page boundary. When column footnote splitting is enabled, the content of a column footnote can split across a single column boundary, providing the maximum depth of the column footnote is no greater that twice the depth of the data block in which the footnote is referenced. When page footnote splitting is enabled, the content of a page footnote can be split across any number of pages.

The paragraph Widow/Orphan settings or binding properties can be used to control where the content of an individual footnote is permitted to split. For example, adjust the $colnote-body Widow/Orphan property to define a default behavior to control column footnote splitting. Setting this property to Any will allow a column footnote to split anywhere, even if widow and orphan lines are created. Setting this property to 2 means that widow and orphan lines are not permitted within a split column footnote.
