I use a double spaces after full stops to seperate sentences, and this is respected by M-q. But with an org footnote mark after the full stop, the sentence limit is not recognized, and the space is reduced to a single after M-q.[1] Can I make emacs ignore the footnote mark?

    I tend to deal with this by putting footnotes or citations before the . rather than after it, though tastes may vary. – kini Nov 23 '16 at 2:04
  • @kini, doesn't that suggest that the note pertains only to the last word? – Toothrot Nov 23 '16 at 2:05

    The relevant variable is sentence-end-base. Modifying that so that a "." can optionally be followed by "[[:digit]]" should work. – erikstokes Nov 23 '16 at 16:28
  • @Toothrot I don't think so... footnotes can refer to the preceding word, phrase, clause, sentence, or even entire paragraph, depending on the context. Or at least that's how I read them. – kini Nov 24 '16 at 0:21
