Using LibreOffice Writer version, Windows 7, English

I want to create a multi-chapter document with footnotes restarting "per chapter," but I don't know how to tell LibreOffice how to identify where each new chapter begins. I have read multiple threads attempting to solve this problem, but virtually all of them just assume I already know how to manage chapters. I need a very clear, simple run-down of how I can tell the program which blocks of text count as their own chapters.

Please note: I have already tried the fix where you set each chapter as a different level in format/paragraph/paragraph style. All my chapters are set to different levels, but the program still numbers the footnotes continuously even when I set footnotes to "per chapter." I assume that means the program is drawing on some other kind of information in order to determine where chapters begin and end--I just need to know what information that is and how to alter it.

Thank you so much for your answers. I am not very tech-savvy and completely at my wits' end.
