Footnote line on the wrong side of the page?
Tagged: footnotes options word left hand

I have imported a document from MS Word into ID, but for some reason the line above the footnotes is on the right hand side instead of the left hand side. I have looked at the options but i can’t seem to find anything that allows me to change the positioning.
I do use world-ready paragraph composing a bit, but i have looked at all the options there are they all seem to fine, text running left to right, world-ready paragraph composing off etc. Does anybody have any ideas as to why this might be?
Thank you so much

That is weird. Is it possible there is a very large left indent on the footnote rule in the document footnote options?

Perhaps, i’ll check that out and let you know. Thank you for your help Dwayne.

So i checked the left indent and it seems fine. I then tried deleting all the footnotes and then inserting a new one and it put the separator line on the right hand side.
I’m sure it must be something to do with the world-ready paragraph composing, but i can’t figure out where?

So i posted my question up in the Adobe Indesign forum and i received the following answer that fixed the problem: “The location of the footnotes divider depends on the story direction. (Type>Story and set the story direction).”
Thanks again for your help!
