Re: [O] Multiple footnote references in included file

Thanks so much! It works.

One issue that I noticed, however, is that the exporter will still give an error for an undefined footnote if a footnote is undefined in a heading that is excluded from export via the exclude tags function. For example if I have tagged a heading 'noexp' in one of my included files, and list noexp on the excluded tags line of the header of my master file the exporter will still complain if there is an undefined footnote under this header.
If I export a master file with this code:
#+EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexp archive notes tasks ARCHIVE
#+INCLUDE: "./1WorkingDraft.org"
It will complain if there is any undefined footnote reference in 1WorkingDraft.org , regardless if it is under a heading marked with one of the excluded tags.

It will not complain about this, however, if I explicitly limit the range of the include function to the headings that I wish to export using a custom id.
#+INCLUDE: "./1WorkingDraft.org::#Chapter1"
This problem is not a big issue insofar as it is relatively easy to work around, and I probably should not have undefined footnote references hanging around in my org files anyway, but I figure that you should know about the behaviour, as I do not think that it is intended.
All best,

Fixed. Thank you.

This is a footnote /definition/ since it starts at column 0.

This is a second footnote definition for the same label. Syntax is too
much faulty for a clean export.
