What happens if someone is supposed to do a jump out of footwork but doesn't? Is it counted as illegal?

It's not illegal, but the rules state that the GOE should be reduced by -3 if there are NO required steps/movements preceding the jump, and reduced by -1 or -2 for having a break between required steps/movements and jump, or having only one step or movement preceding jump.

Ask me a question about figure skating!

Also, I forgot to add that the steps into the jump are only a requirement of one jump element, in the ladies/mens short programs.

But is a positive bullet for the other jumps/long program!!!
