Open tools => footnotes and endnotes
If you want to select a Paragraph-Style you can only choose styles from the category "special styles". I think this is an important information but I miss it within the help. So please add it.
Steps to Reproduce:
User Profile Reset: No
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
I think the current relevant help pages are:
@Dieter, can you say more precisely what you think should be added? Or is this not an issue anymore?
Select the paragraph style for the footnote text.
I miss the additionale information, that you can only choose styles from the category "special styles".

We agree on the relevant page.
> Select the paragraph style for the footnote text.
And the current text, where you are proposing a change.
> I miss the additionale information, that you can only choose styles from the

But then the question becomes whether the existing text is wrong. I do not have an opinion (but suspect that the text will not be seen as wrong.)
I will add CC to Olivier Hallot for an opinion. I am willing to make the change, if it is considered necessary to correct the help page.

Dieter, I could not find any help pages on Special Styles, or I would have added a link to them. Otherwise, if everything looks all right then maybe we can close this bug.
