    Formatting footnote numbers (2003)

    Is there a quick and easy way to make sure that all of footnote numbers are the same format (size, style, etc.)?
    Thanks.

    What exactly do you mean? Do you want to restore footnote numbers to the default formatting after users have been modifying the formatting manually?

    Re: Formatting footnote numbers (2003)

    What I would like to do is have the numbers (both in the text and in the footnote) in the same style as the main text (say Times New Roman), while the number reference in the main text being, say, a size 11, and the corresponding number in the footnote itself being a size 10, with both being superscript. Make any sense?

    By default, both the footnote reference in the body of the document and the number in the footnote itself use the Footnote Reference style. This is a character style defined as (default paragraph font)+Superscript. You can modify this style, and both types of footnote numbers will be updated automatically unless they have been formatted manually.
    Since both types of footnote numbers use the same character style, it's not easy to format them differently without a lot of work. You could create a custom character style, but you'd have to apply it to each new footnote number...
