[LO/OO] False positive: footnotes


(Lodewijk Arie van Brienen) #1

LT doesn’t check the parent sentence when checking the grammar of a footnote, resulting in a lot of them being falsely flagged.

To put it simple, a footnote should be treated as if it is in the parent-sentence in parentheses. (the only thing separating the two is: “does it disrupt the narrative flow?” no, parenthesis. yes, footnote.)
