    Footnote number format (200)

    Somehow my normal.dot template thinks footnote markers should be in roman numerals. Is there a quick way to alter the template so that these markers are arabic without having to go through every new document changing roman to arabic manually?

    Open Normal.dot.
    Insert a footnote and specify arabic numbering.
    Remove the footnote again.
    Save Normal.dot, then close it.

    Re: Footnote number format (200)

    Thanks. Let me ask you this: per the Chicago Manual of Style, footnotes and endnotes should be numbered with a full sized number followed by a period. Word never heard of the Chicago Manual of Stlye, so it makes the note numbers superscript. This is all right for note markers in the text, but not for the notes themselves. Is there a way to change the way Word formats these numbers?
