Footnotes in DOCX are missing after import & export



we are describing a reproducable problem (WordProcessing demo page), where DOCX footnotes are not imported as expected.


Current behaviour:

Upon converting a custom DOCX (including footnotes) into a DOCX again, using the WordProcessing demo, the converted document does no longer contain any footnotes.


Expected behaviour:

The downloaded DOCX should still contain all footnotes from the uploaded DOCX after converting it.


How to reproduce:

  1. Download docx sample file (or create new Word 2016 document -> References -> Add footnote)
  2. Go to demo page https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/wordsprocessing 
  3. Select "load custom document"
  4. Upload sample file
  5. Select "Convert and Download"
  6. Open the converted file - the footnotes in the document are gone



Is there anything that can be done as a workaround until this has been resolved?


Thank you in advance.


Kind Regards,

Hello Dominik,

Thank you for the detailed information.

We have already logged a request for support of footnotes and endnotes and you can subscribe to track its status using the related item: WordsProcessing: Footnotes and Endnotes. Since the elements are currently not supported, they are skipped while importing a document and I am afraid that I cannot suggest a workaround for that behavior. Please, make sure to cast your vote for the implementation of the request using the Vote button of the public item.

Hope this information is useful.
