Hi all, 

the latest version I have of Word (15.34 170515) seems to be breaking footnote creation when you copy as citation.

It doesn't work either by me on Pages and Word 15.16 (Office insider fast program)


It works on Papyrus.de writing app.









ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bug, which I describe.


Mac Air (13-inch, Mid 2013)

1,3 GHz Intel Core i5

4GB Ram

Next time: I'll buy only one with Retina, and hopefully without a glossy screen. A faster CPU and more RAM.


Sierra 10.12.5

Accordance 12.0.6 and waiting on 13 (on iPad Pro with 3D touch)


iPhone 4S

iOS 9.3.5

Accordance Mobile 2.5.5
