How can I add chapter, so my Writer restarts numbering footnotes at the beginning of each chapter? I am writing my BA Thesis and it is a rule in Poland for my footnotes to start numbering from 1 in every chapter.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write several chapters
2. Add footnotes
3. Try to number them from 1 in every chapter
The footnotes are numbering constantly without per chapter reset.
The footnotes starts numbering from 1 for each chapter.
User Profile Reset: No
I think there should be an option to specify where the chapter starts or to set on which pages counting of footnotes resets.

I don't want to reset page numbering, but I want to reset footnotes numbering.

Windows where you can set footnotes numbering per chapter
This is the only solution:
(a) Highlight your "Chapter 1"
(b) Format ---> Paragraph ---> "Outline & Numbering"
(c) Set "Outline level" to read "Level 1."
(d) Repeat (a)-(c) for each additional chapter.
(e) Tools ---> Footnotes/Endnotes and set "Counting" to "Per Chapter"
You cannot mark beginning of each chapter in a different way.
That "Per chapter" option misleads users, it should be "Per outline level 1" as there is no such thing as "chapter" in Writer.
