Hi,

I would like to suggest footnotes type of numbering not to be on a Document level, but an attribute of paragraph styles. This way we could have different kind of footnotes numbering (asterisk, arabic noumbers, roman numbers, letters, other symbols) in one document and we could control where the numbering will have to restart.

I got this idea today when a customer insisted to have only one asterisk footnote on the beggining of the story and all others must be numbers starting from 1. This can't be done automatically in ID or QXP, so here is a chance to be even better than they are.

Here is another feature that must be added:

In InDesign "Story" is missng in the "Restart Numbering Every: (Page, Spread, Section)" (as shown in the picture in attachment).

Something very important is missing. Another feature "Restart Numbering in This:" must be added. There was a case when I needed to start footnote numbering in another story from number different from 1. But, because InDesign doesn't have "Story" I had to choose "Section" and it changed ALL sections numbering in the document because it lacks "...in This" feature.

An interesting idea came to my mind. Why not join footnotes and endnotes together with bullets and numbering? It will give us freedom of numbering them the way we need and want.
