I want the footnotes to appear as following:
the no. is seperated from the whole text that follows mwaning all the text is indented and the no. is seperate
I can not do it in no way. Indesign CS6
Can you "draw" and show what you want by some screen-shot?
Please, pardon me, stop writing. Do the image please.
Create a paragraph style for footnotes. Set the left indent (and right indent if you want one) of your choice and a first line negative indent that is less than or equal to the left indent But be sure it is enough to accomodate the longest number and some space) and add a left-aligned tab at the left indent value.
