I had used the footnote as part of referencing in about 60 pages word document. In this footnote, I also used the cross reference (linking with other numbering and text that were heading 2 or heading 3 styles). When I tried to convert to pdf or at least, click on print preview - the footnote font automatically changes. Please see below 2 images for easy understanding (before & after).
I also tried formatting the styles but to no avail.
I am unable to find the solution - a kind of option to disable the automatic change of the fonts of the footnote.
