I have a very large, very detailed table that has *many* footnotes.
A reviewer noted that it's difficult to distinguish between 'i' and 'j' (footnotes use a small font size)... is there a way to skip a number? (e.g. go directly from 'h' to 'j')
Thanks either way
No, they are definitely sequential.
Alas, I figured that was the case.
I'm going to disagree with the normally infallible Barb here, and say yes, you can:
Format > Document > Numbering: Footnote tab
Just leave out the letters you want to skip.
If you only enter the string shown, and need more than 25 footnotes, it rolls over to aa, bb, cc, etc.
The dialog accepts some very large number of characters. Whether that could be say, arbitrary Unicode, is not known to me.
Wow! What clever solution. I considered custom characters, but didn't think past asterisks and daggers! Nicely done, Bob.
That's geat! Thanks, Bob.
