When I try to search for an existing footnote's number no results come back. Is there some special setting to search for footnotes?


I have an older version of Pages, which I normally do not use as I use LibreOffice, however I just created a document in Pages, added a Footnote and then clicked Edit > Find > Search and typed in a number. It found all occurrences of that number which included both numbers in the document body and in the Footnotes. I could easily tell which was the Footnote vs a number in the body of the text as the number was the first character in a given line after the ellipsis. Not as nice as having a Go to Footnote [n] command but I still found the Footnote.

  • Hmm, that doesn't work for me on a newer version of Pages. Perhaps it could be the document I'm using was imported from a word doc and that is causing the issue. – Steve Moser Aug 26 '16 at 14:37
  • @Steve Moser, Does it work on a document that was originally created in Pages, in the newer version? – user3439894 Aug 26 '16 at 14:39
