Changing number format of Endnotes and Footnotes

Hello, I have two very similar in two issues on LibreOffice :

1) Footnotes (at base of page) are numbered 1, 2, 3, etc. and are continuously incremented across pages throughout my Writer documents. I want them to be numbered i, ii, iii, iv, or alternatively a, b, c, d, etc. and NOT to be incremented across pages, i.e. restart at 'i' at every page.

2) Endnotes are numbered i, ii, iii, etc. I want them to be numbered 1, 2, 3, etc. and if possible the endnote reference in text to show as [1], [2], [3], etc.

I have looked at Menu: Styles > Styles and Formatting (F11) > Footnote and > Endnote, followed by contextual menu "modify" but I could not find the corresponding setting to be modified.

I want to apply the two above modifications permanently to all my documents. present and to come. Can anybody help? -ced
