Isn't the numbering system of footnotes (like page numbering) defined for a section? Then insert a section break in between.
Hope this helps.
In an article I am writing, I want their to be a footnote thanking certain people. As is traditionally done, I want this to be done with an * instead of a number, and then switch to numbering when I get into the article proper. I have been able to do this in the past, but now cannot seem to get it to work. I know how to set footnotes to either an * or a number, but I can't seem to get it to swich from one to the other. It is all or nothing. Any ideas? Thanks.
