ASCII export of anonymous footnotes works fine for me. here is an example for your text above:

The following text

     Some text[fn::text] with note

is exported like this:

     Some text[1] with note

     [1] text

Also, when inserting a footnote, I can eave the label empty - the
fact that this is not working for you must mean that you have some
completion setup that takes over the generic function


[fn:1] ordinary.  note that if you put point here and do c-c
c-c, you will get sent to the next article, which is
disconcerting.  i expected it to go up to the thing that
points to it.  this situation, where you have duplicate
footnote numbers in the same file, but different org
entries, is very common when you refile an article.
don't know how to separate paragraphs in a footnote in
a way that fill-paragraph with filladapt will understand.
would be nice if a way were possible, imo.

I guess you can hack the paragraph... regexps to make \par
a separator.

[fn:2] another

[fn:3] a third

ordinary [fn:1], inline[fn:This is a test.], and
regular[fn:2] footnotes.

It is very difficult for org to find footnotes if there
are several definitions in a buffer for the same footnote label.
But I can follow you argument, so the definition is now search up
in the buffer, before looking down.


[fn:1] regular

[fn:2] usual
