Pasting into Pages does not produce the footnote. Have you tried MS Word or Mellel? It should work in either of those.

Hi Jack

I don't use Word on Mac but Pages

Strange I thought that it had worked in the past. 

Is this something that will be sorted developers??

Seems a pretty key thing to have working correctly

Works in OpenOffice

Would be better in Pages though

Pasting in Pages produces a footnote with the citation information for me.

There was a recent thread concerning Pages, but I don't remember the final discussion. I note that at least one poster got footnotes to work in Pages, however.

I'm able to paste citations and footnotes into Pages with the Copy Citations and Copy Footnotes set to "Yes" in Program Settings.

I should have added that. I'm using Pages '09 4.0.5 (852).

If you have the latest Mac beta, I would say that must be the reason, although other Pages 08 users should probably confirm.

Theres the answer then. Will this be addressed or do we have to spend yet more money to get full functionality?

The problem in this case probably lies with Pages 08.

Yes, but it requires OS 10.6.6, and I am stuck with 10.5.8 because our company database server (4D 2004) is incompatible with Snow Leopard. Upgrading the server is more than ridiculously expensive. I would rather become proficient with Mellel, but I am too addicted to the L4 forum.
