Now I am finished with my magazine for sighted people and want to get it ready to Braille for the blind. In the process, I need to change the footnotes to inline notes.

Is there a way to use GREP to select the footnote text and insert it as an inline note directly after the footnote reference? (See images below.)

There is a macro to do it in MS Word, but if there would be a way to do it in Indesign or Affinity Publisher with Grep find and replace, it would be preferable because I could do a multiple find and replace and do all my changes at once. (For Braille, I need to change tabs to double space, etc.)

Thanks for your help!
