Yes, better, but the markers do not appear when they are in section

The other problem I reported is still there: If the marker is in a
footnote, then it appears not on the line where the footnote is but e.g.
at the start of the paragraph. Same with other insets I've checked
(e.g., branches). It also disappears if you put it into the inset then
close the inset, though it reappears later, in the wrong position as
just described.
