I'm working on a doc with 520 footnotes (!!). I find it frustrating that I can't use the insert placeable command to shift it from the source to the target. So I have to go select it manually and cut and then paste it manually.

Why? Because footnotes are normally placed without a space after a word and without a separating space it's not seen as a separate placeable.

Any known workarounds?

Use find and replace to add a space? Feb 20, 2015

Not sure exactly how to go about doing FR for footnotes though...

Or somehow tweak one of the placeable settings in PB?

Or just add a space manually 520 times and remove extra spaces later...

Use WFP? Not sure how well WFP handles footnotes, never had the opportunity to test that.
