I use Frame and love it -- I would never consider *any* thing else
for long and complex documents, esp. Word (which has caused me evil,
pernicious corruptions). You can't beat Frame's stability and power
for authoring books or other long documents.

Nevertheless, its footnoting capabilities are not as powerful as they
should be. It will not allow footnotes to flow on to the next page --
to do that, you'll need to do it "manually" by creating a separate
flow for the notes, autonumbered and cross-referenced with the main
body text. That's also the only way to do endnotes.

It is the kind of thing they've promised to upgrade for a while; but
I think unless the folks in marketing find out it will make a
difference to sales, nothing is going to happen.
