Formatting of footnote numbers in the source file

Dear all, 

Please take a look at the attached screenshots.

Footnote numbers are not exported uppercase to HTML although they are shown as uppercase in the source file. 

Could we add support to export footnote numbers as uppercase in the resulting HTML document? I found footnote numbers that are the same size as the main text very hard to read. 

Thank you!

Ok Robert,

Probably concerns only Linux.
Set again to Unconfirmed.

Thank you.
Comment 7 Robert Orzanna 2017-06-05 04:16:01 UTC

Thank you for your help.

It might also affect the version used, correct?

You tested 5.5 whereas I tested 5.3. 

Maybe it was fixed in 5.5?

Does someone know more?


Comment 8 Jacques Guilleron 2017-06-05 07:53:29 UTC
Hi Robert,

You're right. I used Save, not Export, which doesen't work this way.
Comment 9 Robert Orzanna 2017-06-05 09:52:24 UTC
Dear Jacques, 

Interesting! I can confirm that "Save" puts the footnote numbers uppercase whereas "Export" does not. 

Bug? Feature?

Which one to you use: Save or Export?

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
