I want to be able to copy & paste footnote data into a personal note. That shouldn't be a problem. It should include all of the citation info when pasted. (Allowing an option to turn off citation info is fine w/ me.) Please make that happen.

Also just noticed that I am not allowed and thus unable to attach notes to footnote numbers in the regular text. In the past, I have been able to do this in L3 and I think in Lnow.

Not only do I want to attach notes to footnote numbers, but I also want to be able to attach notes (or even just a simple highlight) to punctuation and even blank spaces between words, neither of which is currently possible. Currently, the option to create a note or highlight only appears if at least one letter is highlighted with the cursor. UNACCEPTABLE.

If I can't copy the footnote text, then I ought to be able to attach a note to the footnote number to alert myself that there is info in the footnote that I find useful...but I can't even do that.

COME ON, FL...GET IN THE GAME!!!! Super Angry

This is not the case, but you have some form of smart select turned on.

Did you create that footnote in Mobile? Or in the desktop version? I also have notes attached to footnote numbers; I just can't create them in Mobile.

Also, you use iOS, so the comparisons of what features function properly or not are not going to be uniform or consistent.

I've just compared iPhone and Android functionality on this.

On iPhone, if you select the footnote you do get the option to add highlights / notes etc to it whereas on Android you don't.

This seems like a difference in functionality between the two platforms that would be really good to address so the Android platform functions the same as iOS
