       yes, footnotes become jumbled;
           but the fact these are numbered makes them 'find'able  ;-)

       During the 15-30 minutes you're locating these and correcting them,
           you can contemplate all sorts of nasty things to do to these
'glorified typewriters'
          you can think pleasant thoughts while listening to some nice music
           ... somewhere in between  ;-)

I had never heard of the "paste special" feature, so I just tried it. I
started with an .rtf file that LO didn't like. I selected the entire file
with Ctrl-A, copied it (Ctrl-C) and then pasted it special back onto itself
as "unformatted text." It worked just as well as copying to a text editor.
Kinda slick actually.

But, with either method, I lost the contents of my footnotes. To date, I
haven't found a way with LO to convert formatted text to plain unformatted
text and keep footnotes.

If you merely copy & paste over the initial file, then the messed-up

That's why that wasn't my suggestion!

 in order to be sure of eliminating whatever might be causing the 'kink',
the document needs to be fresh  ;-)

That's not true.  But in any case, you are presumably suggesting that
a fresh document would anyway be necessary with your round-the-houses
route via other software.

Again, you are very welcome to go the long way around if you
prefer.  You will not be the only person to do so.
