Hello to all,

In preamble, a ginormous THANK YOU! to all the persons who worked, and are working to make and improve LibreOffice!

Now, here's my layman question: Is it possible to edit the way LibreOffice (3.5.4 on my laptop) does format note numbers in the footnote area?

Rationale: I am a scholar regularly writing articles with a lot of footnotes. Decades of experience with footnotes led me to privilege a scheme of footnotes numbering without superscripting in the footnote area (by contrast, I do fully agree with and enjoy use of superscript for footnote numbers in the main text area).

Editing-altering the style of footnote numbering in the footnote area is something I routinely did with MS Word since ages. Now I am at a loss to perform the same operation with LibreOffice.

Thank you for your attention.


PS: please be lenient with my English, which isn't my first language.

To change the style of footnote numbering in footnote area, select which one you want to use (Footnote Characters by default) in Tools → Footnotes/Endnotes → Footnotes tab → Character styles → Footnote area.

Then edit that style to match your needs by going to Format → Styles and Formatting → Character styles (second icon from the left at the top), right-click previously selected style and select Modify. In the Position tab, under Position section you can choose between Superscript, Normal and Subscript.
