The "Print" button in the Export Draft sheet can only do stuff that is built-in. Thus, footnotes are just plonked at the end of the whole draft. This is exactly the sort of situation where you need to export to a word processor and do your final formatting. The "Print" button in Export Draft is meant for either:
a) a rough copy of your draft (which will not necessarily have footnotes and endnotes in the right place).
b) a good copy of text that does not require special formatting (footnotes and endnotes would come under "special formatting"). It is good for things such as short stories and novels, but not really suitable for creating a final draft of an academic paper or screenpaly, for instance.
Obviously, this is stuff that needs covering in the documentation. I can understand why the "Print" button may seem misleading. It basically prints what you would get if you exported to RTFD, but adds a header. This is the best a non-dedicated word processor can do. AmberV, if you are reading, this would definitely be a good one for the FAQ.
Awpstrike - the other post I was talking about was the one I linked to. In the Tips & Tricks forum, you said that you could not get "convert italics to underline" to work. I said that this only works in the Export Draft panel, and not if you just go to File > Print. Was this the problem? Like I say, it really does help if you respond to things like that, because otherwise I panic that there is a bug I am missing.
All the best,
Thanks. I'd be nice if it worked but I understand that it is a lot to build in. In regards to the italic/bold thing, I'm not sure what I was doing wrong before but it is working now, so that issue was "user error" I would say, no worries!
Any idea when you're going to start selling a final version?
