G'day,

A minor suggestion on org-footnote-action:

When positioned in footnote text, the function jumps back *to the 
beginning* of the footnote reference. It would be more convenient to 
jump to the end of the reference since that is where the author is 
likely to pick up typing the text.

Not exactly earth shaking :-).

Cheers,
Alan

It was done this way because, if point at the end of the reference, you
cannot use C-c C-c another time to jump back to the definition.

Also, if the buffer ends with the footnote reference, there is no such
place. So, sometimes, you will move after the reference, and other
times, it will be on its last character.

I'm not sure which behaviour is the less annoying.

OK, I can see that. For my own use, the suggested behaviour would be
better and the two situations you mention would only be a very
occasional annoyance. The current behaviour has annoyed me 250 times so
far in the one document :-).

But I see your point -- it would be a compromise either way.

Thanks for the answer.

Cheers,
Alan
