Hello all,

I use WordFast 3.

My segments do not show the superscripted number of the footnotes. So, when I save the Target or the Translated file, all the punctuation appears before the footnote like in English instead of appearing after according to French typography. I usually replace the punctuation manually on Word when the text is not too long, but when the text is large, it takes a lot of time and sometimes I miss some, which is an issue.

Is there a specific setting for this?
Thank you for any advice or tips.

Hi Soizic,

Have you turned ON Number Extraction from Preferences > Filters > Check 'Number Extraction' checkbox. You have reopen the Document to get new TXML file.

Thank you,

John
