Hello, and thanks for the feed back.

When I use `C-c C-c', it is almost always to check the content of the
footnote, not to edit it, so you'll understand I prefer the 8.2

But even if it is for editing, I'd say it is statistically unlikely
that the editing starts right at the place where the 9.1 behavior puts
the point.  So you generally have to move anyway, so what's one
additional forward character?

In fact, with 9.1, would it be a problem to allow `C-c C-c' to
directly go back to the reference?

Alternatively, could not there be an org variable whose customization
would allow to choose one behavior or the other?

Finally, something I just noticed: with 9.1, after doing `C-c C-x f'
and before entering any character, doing `C-c C-c' repetitively does
jump back and forth between reference and definition.  This seems to
me a little bit inconsistent with the behavior observed after having
entered some characters.
