BUG: track changes and footnotes

Post by Derick »

When I have edited footnotes in a document, then use the command

Tools > Track Changes > Accept All Changes...

NWP Pro doesn't include changes that have been made to existing footnotes.

Unfortunately I can't consistently replicate this with other files.

I nearly just submitted an article which was supposed to contain no personally identifying information, but which contains the Author info. on all the edited footnotes, because of this bug.

Hi Derick,
I don't have a solution but, coincidentally, I had exactly this same problem occur to me while finishing up an article. I haven't tried to reproduce the problem (got side tracked by other things I need to do), but I'm also sure that I've had files where accept all tracking changes works as expected and others, like the last one, where I have had to manually accept each of the 80+ footnote changes.

I'm very sorry you were bitten by this bug and almost submitted a file that still included tracked changes you were unaware still existed. We are able to reproduce this problem, and will take a look at getting it fixed. Thank you!
