Textbox overlapping footnote




I placed some diagrams together with a caption into a text box and placed
the whole thing on the bottom of a page anchored to the respective
paragraph*. Now I wanted to add a footnote to the same page, but it is not
visible because of the text box overlaying it. Is there a way to work around
that issue conveniently. It's gonna be a document of several hundred pages
with dozens of pictures, diagrams and the like. There is absolutely no way
for me to check every single footnote and diagram for such issues.

* This only way I know to do that half-way convenient. If anyone knows how I
can place a picture including its caption on a page in a way that
- does not leave half a page empty if it does not fit on it (in-line
- does not overlay other stuff
- is not dependent on text changes before it
then please, please, tell me. Seriously, Microsoft, I think you should
really rethink the way large objects are placed within a flowing text!

In Word, there are limited options for placing objects.:-(

I guess the quickest way to deal with the problem would be converting the
footnotes to endnotes.
