Footnote numbering across pages


Recommended Posts

For some reason the footnote numbering restarts from 1 when the article reaches a new page. There must be something basic I'm missing, because this is obviously not supposed to happen.

Quite amazing that "Restart every frame" is the default!!

I have probably seen more books printed where the footnote numbers restart every page, than books where they run continuously. So that default does not surprise me at all.

I would say my experience is the opposite. But I have seen many many books where the numbers are restarted every page. Not sure if there is a style manual for the "restart on every page" option/choice.

Apropos nothing to do with numbering of notes; I have seen books where a single note takes up more than one whole page, starts on page seven, fills page eight and finishes on page nine.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I don't think I've seen one that bad, but almost :)
