If the footnote is on the last line of text in the current panel, the Power Lookup panel omits it.  I assume the problem is that that last line didn't really fit entirely (a pixel or two off the bottom) and Power Lookup is only displaying footnotes for text displayed in its entirity.

I suggest that any footnote on a line that is partially displayed should get looked up by Power Lookup.

Hey, just wanted to remind you that 11 months later, this is still a bug.  It's even more annoying with Paged View since you can't easily scroll one line to get it to not be the last line anymore.

I'm sorry this has not been recognised Jeffrey. I created a bug report on the wiki as a further alert.

Can you post a screenshot of the problem? I opened the ESV in paged view, opened Power Lookup, and am able to see the content of footnotes on the last line of each column (in Power Lookup).

In normal view

In Paged View, with Ps 97.7 as the last verse and fn 3 as the last footnote, Power Lookup showed fn 4!

It happens to me frequently when I'm reading so of course now I cant get it to happen on purpose except in regular mode like the above example. I'll be sure to get a screenshot next time it happens.

I've been able to reproduce this now.

I finally caught it happening in paged mode. Note  23 is never seen:

This will be fixed in 4.2a Beta 5 (next week).
