Anyone having trouble downloading the Macro from the drop-box link?  I'm getting a 404 page error.

if anyone as the macro still downloaded on their computer, if you're willing to email it to me, or post another link in dropbox, that would be extremely helpful.  

Blessings,

John-J

John - I am actively using it in my Word normal.dotm template, so I have the VB code that works. If anyone can tell me how to save that code in a usable way for you, I'll post a DropBox link with the file in it (provided that is allowable on the forums).

Message me, and I can send you the code. You should just be able to insert it into the VB Module of your Normal.dotm template and then follow the instructions for creating a keyboard shortcut if you so choose.

Is there a similar workaround available for Pages on macOS High Sierra?

Thank you for all that you do!

I updated Microsoft Word this morning (Office 365) and noticed that Logos immediately began copying the footnotes without the need for a macro.

Hi John,

Thanks for reporting that this is working without the macro. After further investigation, I found that if this copies the footnote text directly underneath the text and not at the bottom of the page to make sure you have "Copy Footnotes as" set to Footnotes and not Text.

Looks like Logos can close this one!  This took a long time...wondering why.  

Thanks everyone for your help!

To God be the Glory.

Just to clarify, this is only fixed for Microsoft 365 users? We have Office 2016 and it still doesn't work for us.

Oddly, I'm setting up my wife's new computer and the workaround won't even work on her computer with Office '16. The Macro worked in Office, and I can manually add the Macro (by going to Tools->Macro->Macros->and having it run" but setting up a keyboard shortcut didn't work. I restarted the computer and upon opening Office received the message "Word Cannot Open the Existing Global Template. (Normal.dotm)." Then when I'm back in its all gone now. 

Tried doing the whole process again. It asked if I would like to save over Normal.Dotm and I said yes and I was told "You cannot save while the file is in use by another process." Try saving the file with a new name." (Normal.dotm).

Restarted Word and now half my features are greyed out and can't be used....

This was a very easy process when I did it a year ago on my Mac (same as my wife's) but something is going terribly wrong with the workaround here. Any thoughts?

Would really appreciate quick replies because now I can't even use Word. It keeps giving me error messages that "Changes have been made that affect the global template. Do you want to save these changes?"

For those curious, if I do say I'd like to save the changes to the global template, it tells me that it cannot save while the file is in use by another process and it needs to be saved with another name.

Resolved. Manually updated Word (not Office 365, just regular 2016) and it is now working without the workaround. Woohoo!
