Hi 

In the following table:

It is possible to insert a footnote in a regular way, right now I cannot.


What shell I do? What is the recipe to insert footnotes in all cells.


Thanks 

Uwe Brauer

It seems that the function org-footnote--allow-reference-p 
is the culprit, but which places are *forbidden* the doc string does not
say much.

If you mean to insert a note in an empty cell, you can insert just
before the note mark a zero width space (M-x insert-char RET 200b RET)

Best regards,

Juan Manuel

Ah! That was it, thanks!
I think the documentation of org-footnote-action
could be a bit more explicit and cover this case.

In the manual the use of the zero width space character is in the section
'Escape Character'. Perhaps it would be nice to add more usage examples. A
very typical (and practical) use is when you want to emphasize a part of a
word:

with /meta/<zero-with-space>literature you get (LaTeX)
\emph{meta}literature instead of the literal /meta/literature...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel

There was a bug with _empty_ cells.

Fixed. Thank you.

> but which places are *forbidden* the doc string does not say much.

`org-footnote--allow-reference-p' is very permissive. Footnote are
allowed anywhere it makes sense, I think. The function is also well
documented, you may want to look at the source if you have doubts.

In master?

The docstring just reads 

  "Non-nil when a footnote reference can be inserted at point."


That I wouldn't call well documented, but I presume you are referring to
something else.

Hm I pull from 

git remote -v
origin  https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode.git (fetch)
origin  https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode.git (push)

So that is the old repository, no, because the latest commit is from 19
April, where do I find the real repository 

https://orgmode.org/worg/dev/index.html

Still points out the one I use

Sorry, git just did not pull [1]
I had to run 
git stash


Footnotes:
[1]  (I most likely will never gasp git, a pity that the team did not
     chose  not mercurial). I am thinking to clone the git repo again
     with using hg and the hg-git repository.

No, in both maint and master.

I think the docstring is sufficient for an internal function. I was
referring to the code, which contains comments about all the gory
details.
