Find footnote numerals

Is there any way to "Find" footnote numerals? They are not "digits," or "characters," or "text," or anything.

How can footnote numerals be made the target of a Find?


Edit: It will be fine if footnote numerals are even _included_ in the results of a Find. For example, if they were included in the set of "digits" or of "any text" that would be fine (they aren't). Thanks again.

At this point there is no way to find a footnote reference using the find directly. They are intentionally excluded from normal searches. In the future we may have a way to include/find them.

As for what you can do now to work around the deficiency:

1. To find the next reference use the following macro:
Select Next Note Reference

2. To find all references select a single reference in the document. Then click the Character Style Tag (the blue boxed "a" icon at the bottom of every document window) and choose the menu "Select All".
