How do I move linked footnotes (e.g. move the link to another word in the text?). I have tried to follow the Mac instructions but they don't work for Windows. I need to be able to move footnotes easily, as I change my mind all the time! :?

It's not possible yet to move the inspector notes as described for the Mac version; at present they just need to be copied and pasted. You may find this easier using inline footnotes rather than inspector footnotes (since they can just be cut and pasted like other formatted body text or selected and dragged around). With the inspector notes, you can copy the text of the note and paste it into a newly created note or you could copy the entire linked text in the editor and then paste that elsewhere, which will bring the note with it, and edit the text as necessary.
