Insert Multiple Footnote Annotations

A single footnote can use several annotations. You insert multiple footnote annotations by creating cross-references to a footnote element.
Insert a footnote element to a topic. See Insert Footnotes.
  1. Place your cursor where you want to add a footnote annotation.
  2. In the toolbar, click the Insert Link icon.
  3. In the Link dialog, from the Link To drop-down menu, select An Element in this file (Local link).
  4. Click Select Element.
  5. Select the footnote element that you want to link to by doing the following:
    1. In the Create/Edit Link dialog, click an element.

    2. From the list that appears, select the element.
    3. If prompted about the element ID, click OK and Save.
      Tip: Heretto CCMS generates ID values automatically, but you can enter your own values. The ID values must be unique. Assigning customized values may boost consistency in your documentation.
    4. Click the Insert Content button.
    Important: A footnote element with the ID attribute is neither visible in the Content Editor nor in the output.
  6. If needed, repeat 1 through 5.
