New Feature: MS Word Footnote converter

By |

We have a few clients who make heavy duty academic texts on PressBooks, and we’ve made their life easier with a new MS Word footnote converter. The first “in-production” book they did with us had ~100 footnotes in every chapter: getting those footnotes out of MS Word format and into PressBooks format was a bit of a pain.

We now have a little tool that will do this for you…:

  1. Paste your Word doc/chapter with footnotes into PressBooks
  2. In the Visual Editor, find the little “window” icon beside “FN”
  3. Click that… footnotes should be converted
