[GRADLE-2494] Footnotes are not shown alongside the annotated text in the PDF userguide Created: 21/Sep/12  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 1.2
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug

Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0


In the PDF userguide the footnotes are always at the end of the chapter, not at the footer of the page where the annotated text is present. This is not really handy as you have to scroll several pages to reach the footnote and go back. Also when you reach the footnote you may have forgotten that you have read the annotated text and think it is orphaned (which is what I wanted to report first until I observed that the footnotes are always at the end of the chapter instead of in the footer of the respective page). Example: Annotated Text on page 82, Footnote on page 87 in the 1.2 PDF userguide.
