Pressbooks can also automatically convert your MS Word or Open Office footnotes or chapter endnotes for you.
NOTE: If your Word or Open Office doc has footnotes/endnotes, you must do this conversion, otherwise the footnote/endnote code will generate errors in EPUB outputs.
To convert MS Word/Open Office footnotes/endnotes:
- Paste your Word doc/chapter with footnotes into Pressbooks.
- In the Visual Editor, find the little "window" icon beside "FN."
- Click that... footnotes should be converted.
- NOTE: this will leave some blank divs & periods at the bottom of your chapter which should be deleted.
