Description (last modified by noisysocks)

I'm using WordPress 4.8 and Microsoft Word 2016. I made a document with footnotes, and I'm saving it to my OneDrive account for automatic syncing to the cloud.

When I copy and paste the document into WordPress, the footnote links don't simply link to "#_ftn1", but rather it links to the file on OneDrive (incorrectly) such as:

<a href="" name="_ftnref1">[1]</a>

Using a file not saved to OneDrive doesn't exhibit this problem.

hey ,

i think it's not a bug in WordPress core :)

thank you

If it's not in WordPress core where does it belong?

Regardless I don't see how this is an enhancement and not a bug. Pasting footnotes from word works most of the time, just in my reported edge case it fails.

Thanks @repwolfe and welcome to Trac. I don't use OneDrive so I'm just guessing the part is something added to the document by OneDrive. I'm not sure why you'd expect the Editor to strip out that part of the link. It's a perfectly valid link and the Editor can't make assumptions on which links should be preserved and which removed.
