Currently, regardless of whether the "Restart Numbering Every: ...." checkbox does nothing to force footnotes to continue across multiple, unthreaded frames.  I would have thought that if you didn't tell it to restart, it would not and would continue to increment each time if found a footnote - but that is not the case. We have various footnote scenarios based on our different clients:

For some, they want the footnotes numbered consecutively throughout their report. Others want it restarted with every major section. But these reports are complicated - hundreds of pages - and it is very inconvenient to thread every frame in order to have the footnotes be consecutive, because we don't want major sections to reflow/change the layout if there is a change to a completely different section much earlier in the report. 

So this request is to give the user greater flexibility with the numbering of footnotes:


1. Allow for Continuous footnotes across all pages even if frames are not threaded (program would simply look at what the last footnote number was an increment).

 

2. Allow user to click on a frame that starts a story and tell it manually what number to start at.
